I recently had the opportunity to photograph the Southwest High School Cross Country runners in a meet. This is the first time photographing a running event. Fortunately the weather was just perfect. The sun was at a good point on the horizon, but the light was still a bit harsh at times. What I didn’t notice at the time of the event taking pictures was the varied differences of how the runners run and their intensity. I put these first to pictures first because I like the expressions I captured on their faces as one runner tries to maintain his lead while the other is striving to take the lead.
