Ken, yeah sometimes you have no choice. I know each place is different, but I never seen where one can't go around the field. Also, shooting into the Sun gives a different look; it forced you to try something new, which turned out nice.
Lol - thanks Al - I was happy with them too, and exactly for the reason of being put in a position where I had to adapt to the situation - always good when one learns something on top of enjoying the outing! Yes, I thought it was rather petty not allowing access to their side of the field...we've had a long running rivalry - but really - I'm there to capture everybody, so their loss.
