Sounders FC vs FC Dallas – May 7th, 2014

Sounders FC win again. That’s now 5 games in a row they have defeated their MLS opponent. This past Wednesday night the Sounders FC played a rare midweek game against FC Dallas in Seattle. As usually, the Sounders put on a show and came back from 1-0 to win the game 2-1 even after only 3 days rest since the last game (vs Philadelphia).

Another note, the weather was absolutely perfect. The only way it could have been better is if the game started earlier and we were able to utilize the soft light the entire game. Oh well, beggars can’t be choosers right? Below are a few of my favorite photos from the game.

Sounders FC vs Philadelphia Union – MLS Soccer

I wish I had a dollar for every rainy Sounders FC or Seattle Seahawks game I have photographed at CenturyLink Field over the years. I am pretty sure I would be rich! I am not complaining, rain adds a dramatic look to sports images and makes them kind of unique. Although. the rain last night during the Sounders FC vs Philadelphia Union was coming down so hard with some very large rain drops, that it challenged the auto focus system in my Nikon camera gear. Oh well, could be worse right?

Here are a few of my favorite rainy game photos captured during the game between the Sounders FC and Philadelphia Union on May 3rd, 2014.

The MLS Soccer Season has Officially Started

Just a short time after covering the NFL NFC championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers, the other football, or Fútbol season has officially started. I am a little late to post this blog….. so I have actually now photographed two MLS soccer games in 2014. The first was the home opener for the Sounders FC as they defeated Sporting KC on March 8th and the second between the Sounders and Toronto FC in which Toronto defeated Seattle 2-1 on March 15th.

Below are a few of my favorite photos from both games.
