Home sweet (snowless) Dakota
After what seemed like half a dozen snow outs (yes, snow outs) baseball began in Williston.
Even better, they heeded the advice of hall of fame Cub Ernie Banks and played two.
I dropped in while I had a break in designing pages and shot about six innings between the two games.
Felt good shooting baseball again. The 70-degree weather probably helped some, too.
It is the first time in a while I haven’t shot with a 400mm, so that was something new and frustrating on some plays to the outfield. Shooting through a fence at times was also a sometimes-welcome/unwelcome facet of the game.
My favorite shot of the game actually came on accident (top photo).
I was shooting from behind home to get some better pitcher shots (bottom phot0) and accidentally set my leg on my 5D Mark II, which had the 24-70 on.
It fired off a few times and I ignored the photos, but really liked how the top photo came out when I was going back through shots on my laptop.
Note to self: “Screw up” more often.
