Memorial Day Tribute

In tribute to all that have served, here are some Blue Angels photos from the 2014 Wings Over Houston airshow.  The moon was out which made for a cool background.

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.

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…
