The second instalment from an emotionally charged capture of a West Yorkshire Derby takes in the view from the pitch. The raw passion from both sets of fans on palpable edge, it's a celebration of the game at its best, fuelled by those that make it so utterly compelling, the fans.
An exquisite collection of shots that go further than tell any story. Documented with the finest delivery that brings to life the game. While there are so many derbies up and down the country and better yet the world, many go unnoticed to the masses. This battle for West Yorkshire is no more forgiving than any other. Two teams on the same pitch, and the same division with fans that share the same unanimous support, it makes for striking viewing.
From the sidelines to the stands and the rub of the green in between, football is a ferociously beautiful game with an unrivalled history and an untamed future. Whether in Leeds or Liverpool there are scenes like this every Saturday and for the beauty of the game, it's vital they are captured. Shots that give the game the utter respect it deserves with the highest level of quality, who wouldn't want a bobble hat.
