Every fall I’m a dedicated grammy – I spend every Friday night taking pictures of my grandson’s football team – the Williams Valley Vikings. On the night of 10/16/09 I stood in the pouring rain taking pictures. Conditions were awful, but the atmosphere was great – the field was steamy and misty. This was taken at Juniata High School, Mifflintown, Pennsylvania.

I’m posting a few of the team photos in honor of the Viking win against Juniata. I was using my zoom lens, but between the rain and the mist the pictures look foggy.

    This is a great shot, love the composition-perfect atmosphere…who was your umbrella holder??

  • Thanks Jeffrae!!! The handle of my umbrella was shoved down my coat because my “assistant” was uncooperative – I’m getting good at multi-tasking!
