OMINOUS Foreshadowing?

OMINOUS Foreshadowing?

---
Been shooting a LOT of high school football in Philadelphia lately. Yesterday we photographed three games. This was the last and BEST!
---
Both teams had 6-0 records and this was to be a showdown. It was a high-scoring game and the scores remained neck-and-neck up until almost the last minute, when a punt was blocked and one team shot ahead.
----
This scene was shot before the game started. Temperatures were dropping fast and the wind was whipping (I froze my butt off...but it came back this morning). This cloud arched over half the sky and was extremely spooky.
---
The team in red is now 7-0.
-----
Two games to shoot today.

Bravo Michelle! Great capture - love the "big picture" perspective. The players probably didn't even notice the sky. Keep them coming. Best regards, Steven

Super job, especially with that spectacular sky! BTW, I'd be happy if my butt got frozen off (well, most of it, anyway)! ;-D

With both teamsnot wanting to loss their loss ranking, one knew it was going to be a war. The clouds were mimicing the mood. Beautiful side line photo my friend. Know the the team would love a copy.

My goodness, how have you gotten yourself involved in high school football shooting. You are just always finding the most interesting things to go shoot. Ominous this is. Just a great mood here.
