Ballpark at Dawn
With the bright glow of dawn in the background and a light misty fog in the outfield, this photo of Skylands Park on a summer morning shows the field in a different light than most people typically see. Lucky for me, I pulled an all-nighter working security, so I was up for the sunrise. I was also the only person in the stadium all night…it was a little creepy at times, but overall I had a fun night at the ballpark.
Right now, I believe the ballpark is sitting empty for the first summer since its inaugural season in 1994. The previous team, the Sussex Skyhawks, did not renew their lease and the stadium owners were unable to get a different team in this year.
