Blue Angels

Hard to beat these guys.  They put on such a great show.

Wheels down flying slow, one up and one down!

This last one is an interesting shot.  Each started out at opposite ends of the show field.  One to the left and one to the right.  Approaching at a closing speed of almost 600 mph, both flip upside down as they pass one another.  The trick here is trying to get both in the same frame.  I started with the one on the left and panned the camera until they got close.  At that point it’s just hold the shutter down and let the camera do the work.  Sometimes you get em and sometimes you don’t.  Shooting at 10 frames per second certainly helps.
