Sports Photography

     

Cross Country Runner



This image is quickly becoming one of the most favored cross country photos that I’ve done.

In most cases it is hard in capturing a runner without some kind of distracting background or other elements in the scene. Usually there are other runners in the photo or views of the track or the seating area, etc.

However, on this occasion I was able to capture this runner with nothing else but the sky as the background. I was in a low position and the runner was by himself and up on a path at which I had just arrived. I just pointed my camera and followed him until I liked what I saw and was able to snap the shutter at just the right time.

I greatly enjoy doing sports photography and every once in awhile I’m able to capture something quite different from the others. This is one of those moments…
