Here are the shots I took at this afternoon’s match. The match started fairly hot and sunny (I was seriously regretting not putting sunscreen) and ended up raining! Fortunately I took a jacket with me, just in case.
Since it was a daytime match (much more light for shots) I was able to use my 2x extender giving me a zoom of 600 and take more close-up shots. You can see there are actually some decent captures of action of the opposite goal, all the way on the other side of the field.
It was a decent match from my viewpoint. I was happy to see Chicharito get back on the scoreboard and Ronaldo, with his goal, is now 5 ahead in the Pichichi race and he finally got the monkey off his back with the missed free kicks .
