Not so stars on ice

I was able to get out to take some pictures on the local ice rink the other day. My daughter was at dance at the rec center, so I wandered over and took some pictures of some folks playing hockey and broomball. I was surprised that I had enough light at night. The big overhead lights pump out quite a bit of light. I was amazed that with the sun down, there was more light outside in these rinks (maybe it is the reflected light off the ice) than inside at the basketball gym that I have tried to take pictures. Still, there was a bit of bluring in the hands. If I could have kept my 2.8 lens on there wouldn’t have been any, but I felt I needed my zoom, and that isn’t nearly as fast. I found out that it wasn’t so easy to get good images. I could use practice I guess. Anyway, here are some of the images.
