Was a crisp and cool morning this morning. Soccer starts at 9:00 AM and when I left the house it was 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
One of the nice things about fall soccer I'm finding is the amazing colors. A few of these trees looked to be at peak color.
Ashley didn't find the cold to bad. She dressed for it and did not complain.
Today's match was at Coolidge park in Fitchburg. Ashley's team out play them, having the ball in possession most of the game but only ended in a 2-2 tie. For some reason Leominster didn't seem able to kick the ball towards the net. Lots of nice passes but not many finishing touches. Nether less Ashley had fun as usual.
Soccer season has started again. Ashley moved up to the U10 travel league. Interesting thing I found is they play other Leominster teams quite often.
Took a whole bunch of pictures but not many of what I've been looking for. These are okay but they don't pop like I would like them too.
This is starting to get more interesting to watch now that Ashley is getting older. Not seeing the magnet ball so much and starting to see positional play.
Used my 18-200 VR lens for this shoot. I was thinking about using my 50mm but I'm afraid that it won't have enough reach. Being outdoor day games makes it a little easier to use a variety of lenses. Plenty of light and I didn't seem to have much trouble freezing the players. Maybe I'll try out my 70-300mm lens next week even though it is a little on the slow side.
