This was just a grab shot, to remind me that the field goal was good. But the more I look at it, the more I fall in love with it. Printed huge (rather than at this pitiful 550 pixels) it captures the mass of fans, crystal clear. Yes, it was an unplanned mistake.
I’m finally getting around to some posts on the biggest football game of the year. We had three photographers there, Rick Egan, Scott Sommerdorf, and myself. Good coverage. My assignment was to sit in the south end zone with a 600mm lens. One of the other guys would sit in the north end zone and the third would be a rover. That way we’d have good coverage of any touchdowns.
The only problem was this: the game was dreadfully boring. At least until the final 94 seconds. The only two touchdowns of the game came in those final seconds.
Here’s another, what I would call, “beautiful mistake.” I’m not blaming the autofocus this time.
