CLL Thunders Baseball - April 23rd, 2011

I was only able to attend a half inning but had time to shoot a few pictures from down the 1st base line of the Thunders hitting.

Jackson takes a mighty swing ... but misses - mouseover image for closeup of great expression!

Anthony (appears) to smack one right at the pesky photographer

Harry takes a big swing - mouseover image to see he fouled it off

Angel takes a might swing - mouseover to see him rip it ... with his eyes closed even! ;-)

I was hoping to see Kyle hit the ball - mouseover image to see the ball hit Kyle! ;-)

Photography Notes: Pictures taken with a Canon 7D and 70-200/2.8 lens. Should have brought my tripod and remote wireless control (which I used the day before with the Dodgers with nice evening light) as that makes for more repeatable pictures ... plus your arms don't get so tired holding the camera & lens!

I was shooting West (into the evening sun) plus it was quite overcast, so the light is pretty flat ... hopefully I'll be able to make a game where it's better for photographs.
