I mentioned in yesterday's post that we had gone out for dinner before attending the first game of the season at Marblehead High School. We arrived in time to catch the first touchdown and then stayed for the entire game and another 7 touchdowns for a final score of 55-0 (one missed extra point). It was a great evening though colder than expected with the feel of autumn in the air. Here is one shot of a running play near the end of the game under Friday night lights at Marblehead High.
One of my favorite Marblehead traditions is the annual Thanksgiving football game pitting Marblehead against Swampscott. I've attended every game with my son since moving here in 2008 and have captured a few photos of the action on the field in years past. As I left the house for the game this year, I made sure to pack the drone as the weather conditions seemed perfect. We arrived and watched the game unfold with Swampscott taking an early lead only to watch as the Marblehead Magicians clawed their way back and then sprinted ahead for good. At half time, I [...]
With conditions for the Marblehead High School football game, I grabbed my drone and headed out to capture an aerial image of Friday Night lights.

I showed up five minutes before kickoff [...]
Though I took this photo of a tree displaying Fall foliage in October 2012, it seemed only appropriate to share it with the upcoming Marblehead football game against Falmouth for the Division 2A championship. When I visited Gatchell park to shoot the lone tree displaying its foliage, I hadn't expected to find the tackle dummies in a perfect position and with complementary colors to make for a stronger shot. With those jerseys on display, this quickly became an easily recognizable Marblehead football image and I figured I would share it today in case some in town did not know about [...]
What an incredible game! I found a spot along the far goalpost and set up with my longest lens. Was very fortunate to catch two of Marblehead's scores including a great run by Will Quigley. Awesome game boys!
