Skywatch Friday at Darlington Polo Field

Sunset at a Polo Match in Darlington, PA
My entry for SkyWatch Friday.  As Friday in Western PA means POLO then I thought it only fitting to post an image of the Sun going down and warming up the crowd while they wait for the horses to take the field.

Do you play polo yourself or someone you know? I think I would enjoy the sport simply for the love of horses. Terrific photo!

Stan...I love that lens...I saved for a couple of years to buy it. I use it 80% of the time. It's how I see...

Tami Weingartner said...

Jonker, Ms. Becky, Spidermama get yourselves to a polo match. You will have a wonderful time. I've meet the most amazing people and the photography is a real challenge. It's great. Pack yourselves a picnic and go!

Tami Weingartner said...

Shirley...I do not know anyone who plays. But I love the game...it's pretty easy to follow. And all the people who attend the matches are great. I've made a lot of friends over the last few years. Find a club near you...it's a wonderful day out.

Love this shot (and also the one of the "color-coordinated" horse and rider from a few posts back).
Polo is such a beautiful sport!

Linnea said...

Now how did you do that?! The lighting is spectacular! Thanks for visiting mine! Enjoy the weekend.

Glorious gold and the crowd really adds to the photo -- excellent work!

And interesting as well because I had no idea that polo was so "big" there. (I've never seen a match.)Thanks for sharing.
