Yale Snow Bowl

_DSC1942 copyHalloween 2011, Columbia University, Baker Field, Yale vs Columbia. At least I didn’t travel far. It was snowing hard before kick-off and it never let up the whole game. Yale won. Yay! Snow is wet. I had an umbrella and my trusty long lens 80-400mm. I shot. I tried to keep my gear dry. I shot anyway. Alex remembers this game fondly. I remember being wet and cold. I’m used to cold when I ski. But when you are sitting and just moving your finger on the shutter, fun has an entirely different context. His Elis won and I got some shots. Everyone was happy.

  1. I had to laugh. I too hate sitting in the cold, but never even noticed the cold when skiing. What happened next in that first photo? Success?

    • It was Columbia with the ball. They lost. It was terrible trying to slip and slide and holding the ball was just asking a bit too much.
