Bravo Michelle! Great capture - love the "big picture" perspective. The players probably didn't even notice the sky. Keep them coming. Best regards, Steven #10367634

Super job, especially with that spectacular sky! BTW, I'd be happy if my butt got frozen off (well, most of it, anyway)! ;-D #10367697

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.
