Bandy

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Last night I was down in Roseville to photograph a game between Team USA and the Minnesota All Stars. This was the last game before the US squad leaves for the world championships in Kazakhstan. I thought this would be a high-intensity game, even though several US players would not be there, since they play […]

Ski Jumping

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

This afternoon Pat and I went over to the St. Paul Ski Club so I could photograph ski jumping. The club was hosting the John R Lyons Tournament, and there were a lot of competitors, since people came to the Twin Cities for the weekend (Minneapolis had a competition yesterday and St. Paul today). This […]

Ski Jumping

I was over at the Minneapolis Ski Club this afternoon to photograph ski jumping. There are plenty of chances to photograph ski jumping in the Twin Cities, with both Minneapolis and St. Paul having ski jumps, but most of the competitions are at night. Today was a beautiful day, and the prospects looked really good. […]

This morning was nearly a perfect opportunity for bandy photography. The minor problems were some shade on the playing surface during the first half of the game, and an overnight low of -14. These were trivial issues, however, as things worked out quite well for photography. Interesting development right before the start of the game, […]

This afternoon there was an international bandy match in Roseville, between Team USA and the team from Winnipeg. I get the feeling that the Winnipeg team is not appreciably different from the Canadian national team. This was an interesting game to photograph, because the sun was still up at the start of the game, which […]

Pre-Loppet

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

This morning I went over to Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis to photograph a cross country ski race, the Pre-Loppet. This race does the first part of the course for the City of Lakes Loppet, which will be held later this month. It was a nice day – clear blue skies, minimal wind, though the […]

Day Two

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

Today was the second day of the Twin Cities Championship cross country ski race. Yesterday the weather was not conducive to good photography, so I passed. This morning dawned clear (and cold), so I went over to the Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis to photograph the action. Today’s race included our next door neighbor, Cheryl […]

Photographic Housekeeping

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

I periodically update my photography website to reflect the better photos I have taken. It had been some time since I had done that, but over the last few days I updated the site. I also added a new menu choice, Recent, to make it easier for people who reach my site to look at […]

On Monday night I was down in Roseville to photograph a spirited bandy game between a pair of traditional Division I powers – the Minnesota Blades and Minneapolis Bandolier. The game ended in a 3-3 tie, as the Blades took advantage of their deeper bench. Bandy is an interesting game to watch, but, like many […]

Tonight I went up to Mounds View to photograph some ninth grade wrestling action amongst Mounds View, Irondale and Osseo. Better shots from today are on the web here.
