Here are a few photographs from this year’s rugby game between BYU and the Air Force Academy. I was a spectator in the stands and I brought my small camera. They don’t seem to mind if you bring a nice camera to the games. The games are a lot of fun, when BYU wins.
And my hat is off to the rugby players; it is a brutal sport. Lots of tacking without padding and helmets. And it is nonstop play for 80 minutes.
Someday it would be fun to work on the sideline of a game with my big camera. That would be awesome. I don’t photograph sports enough to warrant a super big lens like you see at football games. Those things are expensive! But so cool.
And I love rugby season because it is a sign spring is around the corner. Some games are cold and brutal and others are perfect weather. In either case the players are leaving it all on the field.
