Week 30, Day 211, November 20, 2009, "The Season is Over, but Far From Forgotten"

Tonight was the final night of my son's High School football career.  The Groton Team had a fantastic year, and made it to the state semifinals.  They lost the semifinal game to a great team. 

We're very proud of the team, and I'm especially proud of number 80 my son.  He's been very sick the last few days, but he still went and played hard.  I think that he did not want to let the team down.  He had a great catch, and dive into the end zone for a 2 point conversion.

The stadium, Marina Auto Stadium in Rochester NY, has a large screen at the end of the field.  After my son completed the pass, the camera zoomed on him.  This photos is of that screen in the stadium.

Lessons Learned:
  • Each stadium has it's own type of lighting.  It's important to keep checking the settings on a camera, because the lighting conditions change as the sun sets.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/3200 sec, Aperture f/4.5, ISO 800, Focal Length 115 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 187mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, handheld.

Congratulations on a great season for your sons team! Sounds like he's definitely a son to be proud of, playing his butt off even while being sick!

It's a neat picture that will certainly be memorable as well. Until next year!

I was really excited to see Allen score that conversion yesterday. Congrats to him and his team.

Congratulations on a great season. My team is playing Randolph this weekend. (Moriah) I hope they have a good game. They will need it. They may be missing their #1 back. I won't know until game time.
