As I was driving around looking for interesting things to shoot on Friday afternoon I saw activity at the Battleground sports complex. The lacrosse team was practicing and there appeared to be people running in the snow. I knew that there was something interesting about the scene, but my shots of the runners just weren’t working out because the snow wasn’t visible, and thus the element that made the scene interesting. I realized that the runners were bright enough that I could put the snow in focus and not lose anything important. Let me know in the comments if you think I was successful.
