BNP Parabis Men's Singles Final by matt thomas

After 2 weeks of nothing but tennis, my trip to Indian Wells concluded at Sunday afternoon's Men's Single Final which pitted Roger Federer against Juan Martin Del Potro. After never shooting any tennis before, I will say it was definitely a learning experience. You have to anticipate where the players are going to end up, keep your background clear of line judges & ball boys and frame that ball on racket action. Fortunately I was working with a great team of photographers( Jared Wickerham, Michael Cummo & Kathryn Riley) that helped me along the way.  Here's my favorites from that Finals match, and look forward to a few more posts of my favorites photos from the Tournament.

Last Friday, I drove up to Northern New Hampshire for a weekend of skiing and hiking. That afternoon, I had decided that I was going to make my way up to Mt. Jackson and loop back to Mt. Webster. I got a little later of a start than expected, and realized that I wouldn't be getting off the mountain until after dark. I decided to make the most of the situation and stayed at the top of Webster to witness a great sunset.
