"Cory McGee prepares to compete in the first round of the Women's 1500 Meter during day one of the 2020 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team Trials at Hayward Field on June 18, 2021 in Eugene, Oregon."

Sports photography is a lot about predicting what will happen or being in a place where things will happen.

Much like in track and field, the finish line is a popular spot for photographers because everyone knows the race will end there. But it also takes away from looking for something different.

Finding this picture and lining it up in a split second was one of my favorites from the 2020 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team Trials at Hayward Field.

It took the perfect place and time for this to line up and I know no one else shot a similar image.

So here is to starting line pictures over finish line pictures - sometimes!

"Cristian Pache #25 of the Atlanta Braves runs off of the field after the first inning against the Washington Nationals in game two of a doubleheader at Nationals Park on April 7, 2021 in Washington, DC."

One of the biggest misconceptions of sports photography is that a great picture is only action. And that cannot be further from the truth.

It doesn't take much for a little bit of seeking around to find a nice picture. Sometimes it's like a little luck, sometimes is wondering around and other times it's staying focused in-between the action.

I loved this simple, clean image of Cristian Pache of the Atlanta Braves running to the dugout after the inning. The sun catching his sunglasses made from a welcoming picture.
