Night Game Christmas Tree at Heinz Field

On the way back home, after a weekend with the family, I drove by the night game.

We’re not talking about who won.  It’s been a rough season.  Not looking so good.

I didn’t post it on the Monday after due to the  disappointing outcome for the Steelers.  But I like the scene. And it was exciting to hear the roar of the crowd.

Shot with a 50mm lens, ISO 200, f/1.8 and a slow shutter 40- propped on the  rolled down driver’s window- without a remote cable release but managed without  camera shake. Canon 5D Mark ll

  1. It has been a tough season for the Steelers. A few injuries to key players can doom a team, no matter how good it is. My Bears may have won the game last Sunday but lost a few players to injuries. We’ll see how they affect the remainder of the season. Sometimes the sport resembles a war of attrition.

  5. At least the holiday lights are pretty – though I don’t like how commercial companies are taking over the names of everything. 😦
