Well, at last a daytime match. Maidenhead were constipated as a side – couldn’t pass the goal post and now have lost the last eleven games. It wasn’t for the want of effort. I set up my camera behind the goal, managed to capture some of the action, so I think I’ve cracked it.
Different perspectives, almost the same instant, taken with the remote and my 70-200 behind the goal line.
The second picture is much more cluttered and busy with all the players, but the first one, with a wider angle, is a refreshing change of view, I think.
I also caught the spectators celebrating one of the 3 goals of the match.
and at the far end of the pitch, Andy Young defending against Maidenhead’s attempt at goal.
Charlie Sheringham scored a goal for Dartford. If they’d learn to celebrate by the photographer, it would certainly help! As it is, I get the best shots of the dejected goalie.
And finally, a shot of Elliot Bradbrook, captain of Dartford FC walking on air.
