This image was captured about mid February 1979 and it was purely by chance that I just happened to be in the right spot at the right time.
The owner was giving the team a good workout and that gave me ample opportunity to make a number of nice exposures. Since he was going around the field in circles I had time to pick a nice spot and wait for the next pass.
This was a difficult image to print the way I had originally envisioned it, and the negative required special processing. In addition, I used a home-made screen to soften the dark areas. The final print actually comes across as light misty snow. This, plus the fine snow that was already falling, gave me the mood I desired.
