vs Michigan

Iowa players enter the field for their game against Michigan State on Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010, at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.

I took a 400mm lens and a rented 600mm lens to the upper deck of the north endzone at Kinnick for Iowa's game against Michigan a few weeks ago. It was so much easier to follow passing plays from up there (something I've always struggled with), and the images so much cleaner. The only obstructions were the occasional excited fan, and the wires for the field goal net. Beautiful.
