The other part of football season is opening weekend for the NFL which starts this Thursday night. Denver will play Carolina in a Super Bowl rematch. That should be a great game as well! Now that football is in full-swing, it means cooler weather is coming and we here in Texas can breathe a sigh of relief for getting through another hot summer.
To commemorate the beginning of football season, I thought this shot of a 60 yard field goal try by the San Diego Chargers from the game we went to last year would be a good one... I don't believe he made it by the way...
I used my Panasonic DMC-FZ300 because it has a full-frame comparable 600mm lens at the long end. However, the sensor is pretty small so the shot is a bit grainy, but this shot is at mid-field and we were in the nosebleeds in the end zone, so I might take the trade-off.
I hope you enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by. As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.
