US Open 2012 - A Day on the Green

The 2012 U.S. Open Golf Championship is underway at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, CA. The combination of historic site plus world class golfers equals an enjoyable day on the green.

In San Francisco, it often pays to get up early for photography. On this morning, the mist was still in the air at the Olympic Club creating a mood that evaporated by late morning. I used the 70-200mm f/2.8 Canon zoom to capture these players enjoying a conversation on the way to the green.


Tournament play begins today. You can find out more about the U.S. Open here. It's going to be an exciting four days.

I think shooting a major would be a dream for me.

Nice shots. I especially like the 16mm wide shot. I am shooting the US Gymnastics Olympic Trials in two weeks. I need to find some unique shots like that. Inspire me! :)
