I went to the last practice of our football team.
The bleachers were empty but the Saskatchewan Roughriders were hard at it, preparing for their final game.
I "caught" the ball as it flew through the air past the empty bleachers.
Our team has had a very disheartening year but in Rider Nation we bleed green for our team no matter what. (Our colours are green and white.)

    A gorgeous EoD entry, Heather! It catches the eyes, like you caught that ball, so well placed in your composition.
Your comment that "in Rider Nation we bleed green for our team no matter what" is a fine description of a devoted fan.

Very cool capture Heather!! Perfectly timed and composed. Love your description.

I live in the outskirts of Hamilton in Ti-Cat country. It's amazing how crazy people are here for their teams. Tim Horton's even makes donuts with yellow and black sprinkles. We'll watch the Grey Cup but that's about it. We are Steeler fans here, Jim loves American football.

Talk about pre-visualazation, composition setting before hand for the EOD and patience to wait for the right moment to make the capture. Awesome Heather.

What a great graphic image, Heather, and we even get to see the flying football! You know, in the little thumbnail, I thought these maybe were pencils. :)

Very cool image. The flying football rather than a solitary person in the stands, really sets this apart from other images of this nature. Excellent capture.
