Let me set the scene: we were at a junior football game yesterday (one of our grandsons plays for one of the teams). Up until this point, there had been a couple of touchdowns, but no conversions for the point after, due to blocked or low kicks. Our team was setting up for the kick this time, and I decided to take a shot with my Nikon Coolpix L340 camera, even though nothing may come from the attempt (for the team or myself).
As the kicker touched the ball, I pointed the camera, and held my breath. My thought: get the timing right.
The shot you see above wasn’t one of a continuous set, as you might expect. This was one of only three photos I took that day. The other two were of little significance. But this one caught the moment perfectly, even though my camera is an inexpensive one.
The ball is splitting the uprights at exactly the moment I got the shot. Once in a lifetime.
