A few posts ago, I shot from the stands with the 800mm, but I was shooting from the press box perspective.  Hawaii’s win against Idaho Saturday night found me in the nosebleed section behind the South endzone-waaaaay up there.  Yet another neat angle, and very clean.  Here’s a few images from up there.

All images from up there were taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and the EF 800f5.6, 1/800@f5.6, 4300K Whitebalance, Manual Exposure.

…Just for fun, my favorite image of the game:
