Back in photography mode again

When I “retired” from photography, I didn’t think I would be doing it again anytime soon.  My equipment is showing its age, and I really lost my motivation to shoot photographs.  Its been about a year since I did any serious shooting, and when I got the opportunity to do the Midwest Regionals here in Grand Rapids, I took the opportunity.

Cornell and Northeastern started it off, but it was Cornell that won of a last minute goal to break a 2–2 tie and win it in regulation.

Bemidji State put a serious hurting on Notre Dame by a 5–1 final.  They then took care of Cornell the next day by winning 4–1.  Should have been 5–1 but they somehow were offsides on an empty net shot.  Still, Bemidji state played great.

Their goalie Matt Dalton was exceptional in net.  I cannot tell you how many chances he stopped in the game that should have went in but didn’t.

This was the best shot of the game.  A one time shot right on the doorstep that Dalton just snagged out of midair.  He absolutely robbed Michael Kennedy from Cornell.

What a great weekend of college hockey.  My interest in photography has been renewed.
