Spring Sports

We visited our children in McPherson, KS again this weekend. We took in the tennis matches and the softball games. Here are a couple of images from the day:

Spring in the Woods

Spring is busting out all over here in KC. The wildflowers in the woods are just starting to pop. The redbuds will peak in the next few days. The dogwoods will come soon. I took a walk through a wild area near our neighborhood and found these blooms. Enjoy!

Track and Field

Saturday was a bright spring day in Wichita. We were down on a family visit and found out that a track meet was taking place at one of the local colleges. My son competed in this meet during his college days, so he and I went to watch and photograph the competition. Here are some images of the day

First Stride

High Jump



Photogeek information: D7000 body, 70-200mm f/2.8 (ver. I), polarizing filter. Manual mode with shutter speed fixed at 1/1000, various f-stops based on desired depth of field. Used Auto ISO to control the exposure for the chosen shutter speed/f-stop combination. The max ISO was set at 1600, and the range of values for these photos are 180 to 1600. First time I have tried this approach and it worked well.
