PHOTO OF THE SEASON – 2012-2013

With the 2012-2013 season over, this blog has already looked back at a season worth of photos on a month by month basis.

So here, is a compilation of the best. Feel free to vote.

SEAVIEW

Taken at half-time during the UEFA Cup tie between Crusaders and Rosenborg, I just love the composition of this shot.

SUBS

Taken during the pre-season friendly between Orangefield OB and Linfield, this was one of the few good shots I got from the game, of the Orangefield bench watching the game.

I got a similar shot of Derriaghy CC’s bench last season.

I just love the composition of it.

THE WELDER

Taken during a pre-season game between Harland and Wolff Welders and Linfield, I love how this guy is so content with life, sitting in a chair in the sun, watching football.

He had an official club tie, so I assume he is an employee/volunteer. A perk of the job I guess.

THE OVAL

The Oval, half an hour before kick-off of the first Big Two clash of the season in September

BURNS

Billy Joe Burns taking a throw-in during an Irish League clash between Dungannon Swifts and Linfield in October

WINDSOR PARK

Windsor Park, at half-time during the World Cup Qualifier between Northern Ireland and Azerbaijan in November.

SHIELD

Crowd shot from County Antrim Shield Final. Composition, framing and light just came together at the same time.

GETTING A VIEW

Composition and framing just works on this one. Had to go to back of stand at side of the pitch for it.

MOURNEVIEW CORNER

Linfield had a lot of corners in this game at Glenavon in December, I was going to get lucky with one shot. Decided to experiment with a different angle, and got this. Love the composition.

HATS

If started off as a test shot as i’d moved over to this end from The Kop, the collection of hats, and composition of the shot, as supporters had their eyes fixed on the football in front of them, just worked.

QUINN

Niall Quinn taking a corner during the Irish Cup tie between Linfield and Crusaders at Seaview. Got lucky with the composition, and catching Quinn in motion as he takes the corner.

IBROX

Taken outside Ibrox prior to the friendly between Rangers and Linfield.

A fantastic and photogenic stadium.

Took a few shots of the exterior, and this one worked the best.

SAFETY

Taken from my final game of the season, Bangor players celebrate the late goal which save them from relegation to Championship 2.

The contrasting emotions between both sets of players, and Bangor’s keeper running to join in the celebrations are why I love this photo
