Liberty traveled to Freedom High School to compete in a regular season cross country meet.
I was able to take shots of the Junior Varsity and Varsity in this particular match. Weather couldn’t have been better, with temps in the high 60’s (Fahrenheit) with a light breeze and blue skies. The course at Freedom HS is relatively flat with only a few short rises and downward slopes.
The start of the race was in a grassy area which takes off across a field and up a slope to the sidewalk and then continues on concrete or asphalt for most of the race until the end which comes back across the grassy field. I did see a buzzard flying high above during the race but since I had already shot one in another event (with the camera of course), I elected to pass on shooting this one. I did, however, get a good shot of the afternoon moon which I’ve included in the photo’s.
Camera note – Last week I shot with my Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens plus the 2x extender and did not feel the images were as sharp as normal. This week I did not use the extender and believe the shots were crisper. Your thoughts?
