WARNING: MEDIUM SIZE IMAGES MAY LOAD SLOW ON AN OLDER COMPUTER/POOR CONNECTION!

Fleet Week in my new home was certainly a welcoming site! (and sound.) Here's a few shots.

Since i've been having huge trouble and unexpected problems throughout the year, I've been inactive. Here's my self-welcome back post!

Awesome shots!

I'm bummed we couldn't make it this year. Hopefully next year.

The first Blue Angels shot is stunning! I don't care what the professional photographers say, that shot is a winner! Love the halo effect on the vapour over the wings.

Thanks guys! That angel's shot was difficult. I only brought my 200mm lens, and was pretty far. I saw the Blue Angels coming in to my right, as they all dispursed, #5 seemed to bank right over me. I snapped a few pics, and tried hard to bracket the focus as fast as I could! The sound certainly added to the challenge!

Now I can only imagine what it's like to be a foot soldier!

Yeah, that Blue Angel's pic is a beaut.

I also like the heat blur in the Osprey pic smile

I've seen lots of shots with vapor, but the lighting on the vapor in your photo is something I've never seen before. Thanks for letting us see that fantastic shot.
