Autumn is my favorite time of year. Not just because of the vivid colors that emerge from the fall foliage in my part of the country (nature’s gift to photographers). And not just because of the crispness I can feel seeping into the air as October approaches. It’s mostly because, as temperatures cool down, my personal obsession heats up – my love of baseball. 

With the playoffs and the World Series more on my mind at this time of year than at any other (apart from periodically checking in on my Pittsburgh Pirates during the season), I think back on all of the baseball diamonds I’ve had the opportunity to shoot from the air while on assignment to photograph a building or structure.

Presented here are some of my favorites. I guess you can say that they’re my fields of dreams.

Diamonds don’t have to be perfectly cut – rough and ready works just fine.
