I didn’t get a chance to upload the photos for last week’s Photo Friday until this evening. I won tickets to two Peoria Rivermen hockey games, and despite all the action shots, I dig the way this one turned out:
Not that there weren’t more exciting shots, I just liked this one for technical reasons. I used the 55-250mm lens for both games, alternating between Tv and P modes and adjusting as necessary. I love that it’s nice and bright in Carver Arena, and we had great seats both nights.
We had a great time at the games. On Friday, we caught a puck and got it signed, and my son got a souvenir cup signed. On Saturday my wife was able to come and we got to hang out with friends, a rare treat for us because it’s tough to find sitters.
My son’s now begging for season tickets. I don’t think that’s going to happen, but I think we need to make the time to hit another game or two this season. It’s a lot of fun and it’s good practice with the camera.
