Game Day Photos: Falcons vs. TR

Taylors Falcons vs. Travelers Rest Devil Dogs

Fall is in the AIR! Wow, what an awesome evening here in the upstate of South Carolina! The temperature sunk down to a wonderful 70℉ during the game, and I was telling myself that next week, I should probably bring a long sleeve shirt. ?

The game tonight was great for the Falcons as they not only secured the “dub” but also placed them at 2-0. Travelers Rest had some good players, and some big kids on the team, but the Falcons defense stopped the runs every single time. The game was riddled with flags – with 4 (I think) for having too many players on the field!! First time I’ve seen more than one of those calls in a game!

I was shooting with the Nikon D750 with the 70-200mm f2.8 tonight – propped up on Manfrotto Element monopod and a Desmond DMH-2X1 Monopod Tilt Head that I absolutely LOVE! It allows great control of of tilt, while I loosen the collar around the 70-200 to give me two axis movement. Adrian was shooting with the other D750 with the Tamron 24-70, and did a great job of getting the wider shots, and great sideline photos when the action came right by us.

Once again, there was a really beautiful sunset. We couldn’t see the sun, but the clouds went from pink on one side of the sky to a purple on the other. After the game, we piled into a booth at IHOP for dinner breakfast, came home, Bonnie culled through the 1065 images we shoot tonight and I wrote this blog post. All in all, it was a great night, and I’m looking forward to Wade Hampton High School Varsity game tomorrow night! GO GENERALS!
