Blue Angels at Wings Over Houston

Spent two full days last weekend taking photos at the Wings Over Houston airshow.  It was great weather, which brought out record crowds as they sold out the show on Sunday.  Got to hang out with Christine and her father on Saturday, who is a former A4 pilot.  The Blue Angels were awesome as always.  With bright blue sky’s,  blue jets and harsh sunlight, decided to try B&W for something different, which helped to bring out the details in the smoke trails with the higher contrast.  Took lots of photos so more to come.

  1. Good overhead captures. I like the B&W when there is a lot of smoke. Good job.

  2. Thanks David. Having a full framed camera at the airshow for the first time helped to get some wider angle shots with my 100-400 than I’ve been used to.

  4. Thanks Sheldon. The 500mm would be too much reach inside the gates. I’ve only used it along Hwy 3 on Friday’s practice.
