I haven't seen these posted yet, but I have two awesome photos of Michigan Stadium at night under the recently installed lights. [EDIT: thanks for the sarcastic technical support]
I am the photographer of these views. If you want to have photographic prints of these images e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
from space the naked eye, the Great Wall of China... and this.
(edit) What he said
and paste it in the comment box.. that's what I do.. works for me
I have a check made out to CASH in the amount of $50,000 to whoever wants it. You just have to tell me how to use the U.S. Postal System so I can get it to you.
double post about it.
It was better the first time.
You forgot to have him apply proper postage.
Edit: Just to note that I got confused when I scrolled down to see another comment with the subject "Whoa whoa whoa!"
Awesome, first I help a deposed leader somewhere in Africa get back the millions that some rebel group stole from him and his family by only giving him my SS# and a US bank account number.. and now this. Its my lucky day.
before you leave your house.. get your bullet proof vest on.. it's called postal for a reason.
then get in your car and drive to the post office in town.
Get in line, which of course as we approach the holidays will be 8 hours long...in the freezing cold.
Then once you do finally get inside.. blow on your hands so you can get unfreeze them and get your check out of your wallet... you'll still have a two hour wait inside.
Check over the 150 different ways to send it and how much each way costs.. and slowly allow the steam flying out of your ears to unfreeze your eyes and head.
Once that happens and you realized you just spent your entire day at the post office.. take one of the letter openers and stab your eyes out...(make sure they are unfrozen first)...
Then ask some one, nicely mind you, to help you out. Someone will understand your frustration and offer.. only to realize you're blind with 50K... and steal it...
But the jokes on them, because the guy behind the desk just realized what he does for a living and took out his AK-47...and opened fire.. killing everyone but you.. b/c you had your vest on.
Moral of this huge waste of everyone's time I just wrote, you may be blind, but you're alive.
It looks like heaven.
I couldn't have described it any better myself. Heaven on Earth.
This couldn't go in the post about anything thread?! I thought the board was reserved for coaching related topics only?
Any way we could get a wallpaper made out of these? They look incredible.
Jesus, it's so fucking bright. What was DB thinking? My god think about all the owls around the stadium who won't know if it's day or night.
In the original photos, the upper rows were darkened, a la the LA Lakers, which looked really cool.
All just depends on camera angle, exposure settings, etc. It could still very well be like that, but these are longer-than-normal exposures, so the lights seem brighter all around.
The field is a bit overexposed in the first shot -- in addition to the light washed-out green of the turf, note the nearly white block M at midfield -- so the camera was set somewhere between proper exposure for the lit and unlit parts of the stadium.
The more important question is about the second shot: is it overexposed, or was Denard smiling at midfield when the photo was taken?
They work. If I were Brandon, I would have been on the firld, on the M with a walkie to the lighting guy saying "let there be light." Then there would have been fireworks and a BBQ, cause that would be good.
Nice pics btw OP. Thanks for sharing.
gosh darn that looks cool
1. This is Awesome, thanks for the pics!
2. How did you get your own blimp?
3. I see DB put a MGoBlogStore banner on the side of the stadium. Awesome again.
Watching Denard run circles around the Irish under the lights. Priceless.
I love how unassuming the lights are during the day too. Looks fraking amazing.
reconciled myself to the idea of lights as a necessary but ugly evil. What a great job they did with them.
I noticed that too. It's not often you see a stadium during the day and can hardly notice enormous light structures taking away from the overall aesthetics. Classy job all around.
That is so fucking awesome.
That will get you jacked up.
So, who's gonna be the first naked guy to run onto the field at a night Big House game.....?
In time, all will become clear
Now to get more night games at Michigan Stadium to implement those lights
I just noticed it, but kind of a cool how the M in the stands reflects off the glass facade of the east concourse.
They're so awesome OSU wants some.
Looking forward to the hockey game.......
The only thing that could make the first photo better, one would have to imagine the stadium being full of fans.
the first and second pic looks alot brighter, probably just the angle though
We should play all our games at night!!!!!
When are we going to get a bball game in the BIG HOUUUUSSSSEEE!!! AAHHHHH! Loud noises!!!!! So Exicted!
Is it September 10 yet?
December 11th first
Check out Mitchell Field way in the background of the second photo!
This just became my new desktop. Amazing.
You've inspired me.
Those are way brighter than I expected them to be. They look AWESOME!
they're working on Denard on the field. A couple of bolts came lose during the OSU game. His wonder makes the whole field light up
chills all over looking at those.
I really hope they take some photos of the ND game next September.
