ABC - R - RAMSEY RUGBY


Help! Cannot sign into Mr Linky on ABC, My World Or Skywatch. Anyone else had this problem? Appreciate your help or thoughts on this one. Thanks in advance.



Ramsey Rugby. A strange game to some, only played by girls in others, or the best game in the world to many. What about you?


Ramsey are the ones in the blue shirts. I was going to upload the monochrome version, then I realised that would be no good if I said blue shirts in a black and white photo. Doh! Anyway it's Rugby Season. This was home game match( I am not allowed to mention the other team) and as you can see the lads were getting stuck in. The Rugby Pitch, Mooragh, runs alongside the Promenade. You can see the car in the background, right hand side along the promenade road. In other Rugby shots I've shown you the Mountain backdrop. I know I'm lucky. No hooligans here. It's a family sport.



This sport is a lot easier to take than the motorbikes. Another tip, know the rules of the game. This helps to take the money shot. The local paper will only take a few shots and disappear. You stay the game and you'll get the better shot. Again do not saturate the colours. The teams strip should be photographed as they wear it, not over egged.



Want to join ABC got the lovely hostess with the mostest, MRS NESBITT'S PLACE

Rugby is said to be a thugs game played by gentlemen.

I'm sure there are no thugs in Ramsey, so it must be true!

Babooshka.....Just past midnight here IOM time and I've just checked Mr Linky out on the ABC site and I'm afraid to say it isn't working.It was working perfectly earlier when I posted my link. Computers ehhhhh......Like the rugby action shot. Friends of mine are staunch ramsey fans but I've never watched. Must get myself down there one of these days.

raf said...

Wow, super shot there, Babooshka!
Sorry, haven't tried any of those linkys lately, so don't know.

chris said...

Don't know about your pc troubles but the photo is a knockout. I'm a Vaga, the team you can't mention. Terrific action shot.

Nice capture!

Sharon said...

Fantastic action shot.

Sara Chapman in Seattle said...

Great ball shot. And I hope you got your Mr. Linky problem fixed.

And thanks for visiting my clouds-from-above post for Skywatch. Much appreciated!

PAT said...

Mr linky is not connecting properly on the island. I sign in for a wordless day. It will only sign you up when it first appears, then it wipes out the links which are still visable to others. You need to get someone across to sign you in. The host of each theme, neme should do this for you. Not sure if this is a server problem. Hope this helps.

Pat.

I don't know from rugby, but I'd agree with your observation about knowing the rules of the game. I've found in shooting hockey, knowing the game allows you to anticipate the action. And in a game that moves as fast as hockey, that's the only way you're going to get the shot you want. I'm guessing the same holds true for rugby.

I've always loved shooting sports simply for the raw emotion that comes through in the photos. Looks like you have the same idea here!

photowannabe said...

Great rugby action shot and perfet for the letter R.
Now Mr Linky seems to be working. I clicked on your name and here I am...

Gordon said...

Babooshka - I just added you to the Mr Linky roll.

Rugby is played in Australia also; is more popular in the eastern states than here.

Cloudia said...

Fellows play rugby in Kapiolani park here in Honolulu. People wonder what they are up to! ;-)
Aloha-

Leslie: said...

Rugby isn't so popular here in Canada, but I'd love to see a game over there some day. :D

Jim said...

How do you get them to look like statues.

magiceye said...

Priyanka Khot said...

The action is actually happening in a static photo. Really nice click.

Ming the Merciless said...

Awesome photo!! The clarity and capture are just perfect!!

Olivier said...

je suis fan des photos de sport, et je trouve cette photo vraiment superbe, bravo tu étais dans l'action.
I am a fan of sports photos, and I found this picture really superb, bravo you were in action.

naturglede said...

That was a good choise for the R, and a greate photo:)

Bibi said...

Great catch, pardon the pun. And at the risk of being disrespectful to veterans, your photo reminds me of the famous shot of the flag raising at Iwo Jima.

earthlingorgeous said...

I followed you in the Mr. linky so it means you are there and there is no problem I think.

I love this shot! Very action packed!

angela said...

Rugby. lovely. Just love the action shot but also the golden Autumn light. Reminds me of Saturday afternoons watching the boyfriend playing. Ah! Nostalgia...

RuneE said...

Obviously a tough sport, But is Ramsay Rugby different from other forms of the spor (apart from giving you two Rs?? :-) ) We don't have it here.

Concerning Mr.Linky - I managed to log in early yesterday, but then it seemed to stop and no more entrants came. But The, we are one hour ahead of you. Last week - disaster.

Personally I hate Mr. Linky.

Miss_Yves said...

Great shot!
Maybe Rugby was born in France, during Middle Ages ("La Soule" was the old name of this sport)
Nowadays, Rugby is very famous and popular in the w south of France!

Liz said...

Great action shot.

Love it. Going to see Wales take on the All Blacks on Saturday!

Aileni said...

Nice picture, pity about the game...:)

simon said...

I like your sports photos best. They have astonishing clarity.

JM said...

You've captured the right moment! Very good!
Awesome previous photo! The deep blue is amazing.

Dragonstar said...

Excellent action photo, and a great double-R.
Linky keeps disappearing. It comes back for a while then goes again. Aileni's keep vanishing on his monochromes.

Now I change hats, and as a member of the ABC Team I thank you for your participation. There, will that do?

Jim said...

Your sport/action pictures are always the best. Whats a strip? I thought you were going dirty. LOL.

We have our first basketball game Friday night, I am going to try to see what kind of pics I can get with my new camera.

Sailor Girl said...

Gordon had added you to Mr. Linky but it disappeared again, so I have added you again!

«Good grief, Charlie Brown...»

LOL!!!!

Rocky Mtn. Girl said...

Cool post! Love the action shot of the rugby players!!

PixieKatten said...

Oh Rugby.. one thing I really miss from when I lived in Scotland! Great 'R' shot!
Thanks for your nice comment. I am indeed enjoying blogging and taking photos again. Nice that it's showing. ;)
Have a great day.

Sailor Girl said...

Oh Dear!!! Now you have just appeared again, out of the blue, right under Gordon!!! HELP!!!!! But I swear you weren't there some minutes ago!!!!

AphotoAday said...

Nothing "r"ougher than rugby...

Brian said...

Great photo worthy of this blog

Thanks for comments on my blog Brian

Tanya said...

You are in your element! Great shot!

Ken Mac said...

Great stop action! The shape of their bodies almost recalls the flag raising on Iwo Jima. Iconic!

lv2scpbk said...

Nice action shot.

Lily Hydrangea said...

perfect R word for today & great action shot as well!

Lisa Wilson said...

Nice action shot!

coolgirlsar said...

Great action shot! I keep meaning to get along to a game my brother plays to practice some photo taking but alas the weather keeps putting me off, yes I know I'm a wimp. Love how you've captured some of the players up in the air. Awesome.

antigoni said...

Great post!

Bjørg 47 said...

I happened to cycle (pushbikes) on Your wonderful island one week in september this year. Good to watch Your photoes, good remembering .

Neva said...

HI Babooska, Mr. Linky worked for me earlier but is not working now. oh well....I love your shot of Rugby. I had 2 brother in laws that played for Arkansas a long time ago.....a very dangerous activity from my mind! hope your computer glitches get worked out soon!

Kelly said...

Great action shot!

Sailor Girl said...

Now Mr. Linky totally disappeared! So strange!!

VP said...

Great picture! I had no problem with Mr Linky, but it was just after 8 o'clock last night. Maybe the problems started after that time?

Jay said...

I only watch American Football, which I believe is based on rugby ... loosely at least! It's a great action shot, though!

mirage2g said...

Great action shot, they are all at the half of the frame and the ball on the other! Superb!

Merisi said...

You caught them right at the top, great picture! :-)

marley said...

Cool action shot! I'm no fan of Rugby (I think it has to do with being forced to play in the cold and rain at school!) Phoebe goes to watch Gloucester play with her dad and uncle, not my thing I'm afraid. Though I like watching football. Anyway, not an interesting story but thats life! Lol :)

Bear Naked said...

Wonderful shot and perfect for the letter R.

I have been having difficulty all day with Blogger and Mr. Linky.
Glad to hear that I am not the only one.
Hopefully the problem will get fixed so that we can visit everyone's blogs.
Bear((( )))

Bergson said...

Funny! The ball seems round on the photo

Marie-Noyale said...

I thought the rugby ball was oval?
Or is it another way of playing from the Isle of Man!! :~D

ShutterSpy said...

Perfect.

Lessie said...

I love the action caught -- the moment in time. I'm not familiar with rugby -- so it's fun to see such a picture.

Jilly said...

What a great action shot. I noticed it yesterday on the portal and then the day got away from me.

crittoria said...

Fantastic shot!!

tr3nta said...
