Cheetahs vs Crusaders

Welll you never know. For those of you who have written the Cheetahs completely of and said that they do not belong in the Super 14 competition got a huge surprise when they beat the Crusaders 20-13 on the 25 of April. They show some commitment and guts and specially their tackling were excellent.

Hennie Daniller was the man of the match and scored the winning try in the last five minutes of the game.

I got this shot of Juan Smith, captian of the Cheetahs, with my Nikon D3 and 400mm F2.8

March/April 2009

The last 2 months were really hectic and i’m so glad to be back home and do just some normal stuff like writing this post. Apart from covering the SA Primary Schools(see previous post) we also covered the SA Masters(East London), Level two Aquatic Champs(East London), Level One Aquatic Champs(Durban), SA High Schools Athletics(Durban), SA National Aquatic Champs(Durban).

In between i also did a wedding and some soccer and also the Cheetahs vs. the Brumbies in Bloemfontein.

Through all this and thousands of photos later it is impossible to take out two or three photos and say this are my best shots of the month. Never the less here are two photos that i certainly like very much.

Chad Ho during the 1500 m Freestyle at the SA National Champs in Durban. I used my Nikon D3 and a 400mm F2.8. I used a slow shutter of  1/45 sec to get the pan effect.
