2016 Michigan vs Hawaii Game Day Photographs


110,222 Wolverine fans came out to kick-off the football season on August 3, 2016. The very sunny and very warm day caused no challenges to the Wolverines as they defeated the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors 63 – 3.

You can feel the excitement in the air. Game day is like a ritual in Ann Arbor and for us. We never seem to get there early enough to get more pre-game antics.

As we were checking in, we met a man who asked us to photograph the “Signer” of the National Anthem, and I managed to catch the flyover. (Probably my best photograph of the day). Dale made many many spectacular photographs. Wonder which one(s) will end up in “Washtenaw County: Visions of the Eagle?”

Enjoy these photographs… We plan to be in the air on Saturday’s game against Central Florida. So we’ll have photographs from Dale’s ‘Eagle Eye’ perspective.
