Moses Mabhida Soccer Stadium

by Gerhard

Well i don’t know if the Moses Manhida soccer stadium in Durban South Africa is the most beautiful soccer stadium in the world but for sure is the most beautiful stadium i have seen in my life. The architecture is out of this world and in 2010 during the soccer world cup a total of nine games are going to be played in this stadium with a capacity of plus minus eighty thousand. This include one of the semi finals.

I took this image during July this year with a Nikon D3 and a 24-70mm F2.8 lens. To get the right lighting one must shoot it on manual otherwise the cameras light meter always tend to over expose a photo like this which let it look very dull with no punch.

Settings on the D3;

Shutter – 1/320

Aperture – F7.1

ISO – 1000

White Balance – Auto

The security around the stadium is very strict and there is no way one can get inside to get a few shots with a different angle.
