The Ashes

By ColleenA
Good evening from Winchester...a long day catching trains and taxi's from Nottingham. I am finding the hot weather a bit too much...GrinGrinGrin
As promised a few images of The first Ashes test taken with my little Samsung compact....did not want to take my Nikon to the cricket so not the best quality images but does give you a feel of the game.
Thanks again for all the votes and comments, much appreciated

I envy you for being at the test match at Trent bridge. A keen player and follower of the game for many, many years I think that as a match it ranks about the best. My first County match i saw was at Worcester for the 1948 Australians, including Bradman.

Hi Colleen I was wondering if you were going to do a cricket one.Smile V1 is great love the shadows made on the ground by the team.
You could think they were doing it for the camera.SmileSmileSmile this is a nice set.

Not a cricket fan myself but what amazing photos - can't think how much better they could have been with another camera.
V1 is fantastic.

Who said Test Matches aren't exciting (my wife, I think GrinGrin). v1 & v2 are very good compositions in a fine selection, Colleen. Roll on Thursday.
