"Night in the Valley"
by Trent Allen

This photo was taken before the Clemson vs. Florida State, nationally televised, football game on Labor Day night, 2007. The photo shows Memorial Stadium (Death Valley) moments before the start of the game. You can see the referee standing beside the Clemson kicker as he prepares to receive the ball for kick-off.

Believe it, or not, it took five weeks to get permission to take this picture. After 9-11, security issues mandate a "no-fly zone" around major sporting events. This is why you only see the airplane advertising banners flying over during pre-game. The air must be clear two hours before the game starts. In order to fly over the stadium we had to obtain permission from the CU Police Department, the CU Athletic Department, SLED, the TSA, AND the FAA.

Other photos taken that night include: "A Sea of Orange" and "Tiger Band Spells Out Tigers"
