Liverpool v Trabzonsporas 18.8.10 Europa Cup Qualifying

31 08 2010

This was the second football game of the season for me and it was raining! Traveled to the match by car and cycle.As well as helping to keep my fitness levels up it also means no parking problems at the ground. I carried the camera gear in a North Face backpack and a ThinTank Photo belt system.

This match was a bit of a challenge for Liverpool and their new manager Roy Hodgson. The Turkish fans were in good voice before the kick off .

I was using the Nikon 400 2.8 for the first time for a night game. What a difference this proved to be. Super sharp and with the extra reach I was able to shoot action at the half way line.I was shooting at 3200 asa 1/1000s shutter speed and an aperture of 2.8.

Torres came on for Liverpool in the second half and I was able to capture a few images.

Liverpool new signing Joe Cole was also in the thick of the action and had a good game despite missing a penalty. Liverpool eventually finished 1-0 winners and carry a slender league to Turkey for the away leg.
