Skywatch Friday: The Sun Falls Behind Yankee Stadium

IMG 7858

Sunlight slipped away as we waited for the Yankees and Orioles to start playing on July 20. With Andy Pettitte on the hill and my three favorite people beside me, I couldn' ask for anything more--except that maybe the rest of the Yankees actually played ball, too, those first eight innings. Anyway, the view was good and Matsui saved the day. (Here are some more views of the stadium.)

  18. Beautiful capture of the lights (sky and stadium!) It really draws me in and I found myself rooting for the Yankees, too (if only for a moment, then I went back to the Tigers...)

    ReplyDelete

  37. Now that is one really cool shot. Hope you enjoyed the game. =)

    ReplyDelete
  38. The little flags look interesting sticking up there into the skyline. There appears to be one cloud now wanting to clump up with the others. It is whisping through the sky on its own path.

    ReplyDelete
  39. My what an awesome view you had of that lovely sky. Nice slide show, Sandy.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm afraid I would have to have cheered for the Orioles (or anyone below the Mason-Dixon line!) having once lived in Baltimore... but NOTHING would beat that photograph! It's a lovely shot and brings back many happy twilights in the bleachers, and sharing real American hot dogs with good friends... even if I did forget to ask who on earth won the game until the ride home! LOL Happy memories, Sandy, thanks for this one!

    ReplyDelete
  41. what a dramatic composition My Dear Friend! The whole slide show is fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great picture!! But having grown up around Baltimore, I'd would have had to root for my O's.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Mysterious view drowning out all the hoopla from the stadium. Are you sure people don´t think you are odd for pointing the camera in to the wrong direction? :-)

  65. What a great skywatch. There's nothing like a summer day at a baseball park! I enjoyed the slide show, too. It's great to see a personal perspective of the new stadium. Lots more potential skywatch in there, too.
