Blue Angels Turn and Burn at Wings Over Houston

The Blue Angles put on another great show at the Wings Over Houston airshow this year.  Spent the afternoon on Friday along Hwy 3 near the end of the runway.  Hand held my 500mm lens for about 3 hours, which was a good work out.  The biggest challenge was keeping it steady with the high winds.  I like the different angles that you can get from this location.  Spent Saturday along the flight line near show center but just got the typical airshow shots.  Here are some of my favorite Blue Angels shots from Friday.  Most of these are full frame with very little cropping.   It was time to turn and burn…

  1. Love the captures. Great angles on all of them. Love the top 3. Last one is nice with birds coming across the frame in a diagonal with sweeping smoke.
