Runners in a Wooded Landscape
We turned up at Avondale in County Wicklow
two weeks ago, on a Sunday, to find that
a cross country event was is full swing.
Sports photography is for those of a less
indolent temperament, I think, but I got some
shots as the runners moved along a well taped
The filter brings out the line of the tape,
negative spacing in the middle makes me feel
a bit bewildered, but that might be in keeping
with the event. The metaphors of sport are
always very obvious.
Also, from what I have read, a fast lens
is a must for lively sport shots.
Mine is a slow lens and in ways the figures
seem a bit frozen on the spot.
