Nice day for a ball game

Yesterday afternoon I got lucky and the baseball game I was supposed to shoot did not get cancelled — a pretty rare thing around here this time of year. The only change was the venue, from a Naselle home game to an away game. But since It was such a nice day — and who knows if we'll have another any time soon — I decided to make the hour drive to Cathlamet to shoot the season opener for the Comets. and I'm happy to say my time paid off. I got great light, and watched a pretty good game — especially for it being their first game. It wasn't so lucky for them though as they lost 4-3.

This is one of my favorites becuase of what happened right before this. Naselle had a potential scoring situation with a man on and Austin Burkhalter coming up. Austin apparently hasn't played organized baseball in a few years and this was his first at bat. The coach kinda smied and said as much to the other teams coach after he swung and missed pretty bad on the first pitch. Two pitches later though he hit an easy double and ended up on third on a throwing error which scored a run.

One more from a little earlier...

I shot the volunteer clean-up at the county fairgrounds on our way to Chehalis on Saturday and I liked this pic, which ended up on our front page this week. There was a lot of debris around the grounds from the December storm and they ended up burning it up on a huge slash pile.
