My weekend was a bit hit or miss really.....

11th February 2018

My weekend was a bit hit or miss really.

The hits were when I couldn't avoid the heavy rain and drizzle... the misses were when I managed to avoid the wet stuff.

Of course when you are a sports photographer there is no excuse to run for cover when the weather turns inclement. No, far from it! If you're lucky you can try and face away from the direction of the precipitation. This way the lenses might stay reasonably free of water but then it will always find a way to dribble down your back!

However whatever the inconvenience you have to keep working.

My biggest soaking of the weekend came at the Guernsey Football Club v Thamesmead Town game at Footes Lane. I had looked at the rain App before getting out of my van and it reckoned that the showers had passed through... I trusted it so I didn't put on the full wet weather gear. Hence the soaking!

I looked a right charlie when I returned home as my left side was drenched through whilst my right side was quite dry! It was worth the discomfort though as I captured a few good pics. They will be uploaded later today.

The first additions to the Gallery from a busy weekend are pics of the GK&MC's first Motocross event of 2018 and Round-2 of their Karting championship.
