    The last few days of my time off, So I took Dylan for a 2 mile walk in the forest just down the road from our house.

    Friday night is golf night for me - Took the camera this week, didn't get many shots, this was the best of them. I came 3rd of 20 :smashin: This is the first hole, a short par 4. with stunning views.

    Then this afternoon went to watch the National Library (My workplace) football team take on Talybont in the district league. First time I've tried football photography - it's really difficult :eek:

    Obviously they are all good. But for me the first one is ace.

    Definitely #1 - something very eerie and concerning about it. You think "I hope the kid is going to be ok".

    'The lost kid' is what springs to mind.

    They are all good but as the others have said #1 is a stunner. Love the effect the UWA lens (and the photographer!) has produced here.

    200mm f4 AIS

    I spent most of my time watching the game rather than photographing it. I was standing on the halfway line with everybody else rather than in a decent spot - Maybe next time i'll got for a 'traditional' spot down by the goal :rolleyes: It's given me a taste for this kind of thing as well - I might pop along to an Aberystwyth Town game and take it a little more seriously.

    Thanks for the comments - I like the first one too, I did the mono conversion to add a little more depth and drama. The UWA has made him look a little taller than he is - he's only 3!
