Wet Wednesday - Premier League Men's Hockey - AHC 2 SEAC 1

Wednesday 25 May 2016 

Premier League Men's Hockey

Round 10
Seacliff leading the ladder unbeaten met Adelaide on a wet Wednesday evening at Adelaide University ground West Beach.
Adelaide scored the first goal and retained the lead into the second half when Seacliff scored the equaliser.
With minutes to go it appeared a shootout may be required to decide the game.
A penalty stroke awarded to Adelaide and the subsequent goal scored by Huey Purvis (capt) decided the game.
My editing of the frames did not pick up the barely visible, but now cropped out, ball placement in the bottom right corner of the net but shows the rebound out from the net.
A great team effort from all the players against a competitive opposition in the rain. 

More photos will be posted later. ©billpurvis

Gif animation - AHCvGRRY PLM Hockey - a shot on goal

Pea Park - The home of Adelaide Hockey Club
On a wet Sunday afternoon.My glasses and viewfinder splattered with rain,
the camera searching to focus in the low visibility and flattened view.
The rain does that, distance becomes indiscernible, a fog.
I focus manually hardly successful, try for the impossible.
What can one make out of a burnt cake...(thought bubble) - cut off the outer layers.
Yes.... a GIF!

Adelaide Premier League Men playing Grange Royals, struggling to find an equaliser and take it
to a shootout, the score 1 - 2.
A shot on goal from Victorian import James Humphries.

Excuse the artistic licence.
I think I have been reading too much of the Robert Cappa D Day and resultant
aftermath drama.

Stormy weather - Adelaide - South Australia - Monday 9 May 2016

Photographs taken at Semaphore Beach
The tide had not yet reached its peak which came some hours later.
The combination of a king tide driven by gale force winds
caused flooding in beach areas around the state, the perfect storm.
