I was fortunate enough to spend yesterday afternoon in the company of Darren Walsh, the official photographer for Chelsea Football Club. As part of this, I acheived my long standing ambition of photographing a first team game from a pitchside position. Cheers Darren!

This is my favourite image from the day - those who are interested may like to check the rest out at my website (link in profile).

Exposure was 1/500 @ f/3.2 ISO 800. Image processed through Noise Ninja and then Lightroom.
