After a beautiful sunny week in Evian Les Bains, Ai Miyazato of Japan won the Evian Masters tournament along with the $322k purse for first place. She is pictured left in front of the Japanese flag which is nicely back lit by the sun. A reflector was used to create some of the fill light and due to the scrum of photographers I was using a 70-200 lens on a 1DMkIIn body. There were some great crowds at the event and the large grandstand round the 18th green was packed with spectators.
The classic "Evian Shot" is on the 5th hole which affords a beautiful view of the lake is sometimes known as "Lazy Corner" by the photographer as you can sit there all day with your arsenal of lenses letting the entire field come to you and snapping them as they go by. I have included a shot of Ai Miyazato below taken from Lazy Corner just because it wouldn't be the Evian Masters without one.
Tomorrow I am off to the Ricoh Women's British Open at Royal Lytham, The only Ladies Major outside the USA .
