Signs of Fall

So this weekend Neil and I decide to wake ourselves up early in an attempt to catch the rising sun. Unfortunately though, the sun failed to rise. Well, it did rise but I don't think I ever saw it throughout the duration of the day. The brightest part of the sky when the sun was supposed to be coming up was in the southwest... needless to say we were rather confused.

So we failed in our attempt to get really cool sunrise pictures, and the gym was closed so Neil couldn't go work out with Jonathan. Instead we all ended up going on a 5 hour photoing expedition on dirt roads with fields old combines and the like. It was great!

We would stop the car, crank up the tunes and see what we could find to photograph.

Oh and we also stopped by places such as Dismores and The Co-op.

It had rained the night before which made for excellent water droplets.

Highland Games

This past weekend was the annual Highland Games here at WSU and it was a blast! This year we had more participants then we had ever before we had so much fun. This was my fourth year participating and I have to say this was probably my favorite games yet. They made a revision to the rules this year that if you wanted to be a contender for the title William Wallace then you had to do the 2 mile run to start off the day. It was so much fun running through Greek Row with so many this year in the midst of the pouring rain.

Thankfully the weather cleared up so I was also able to enjoy photographing the events and think I had just as much fun doing that as i did in the actual participation of the Games. Here's a selection of some of my favorite shots.
