My private F-16 show.
Lens: 55-300mm Pentax Camera: K5 Photo Location: Saugus Ma. ISO: 400 
Posted By: charliezap, 04-14-2012, 05:59 AM

Saugus Ma. is less than 10 miles from Fenway Park in Boston Ma.where the Red Sox play.The F-16's flew right over my home and property several times before they headed to Boston for a flyover at the end of the National anthem.I was shooting fast and loose from the hip but did manage to get some pics.--charliezap

I do like the second shot, the branches frame the planes very nicely, well taken.

Considering that the jets were not going to wait around for me to get set up I was happy with the outcome Steve.--charliezap

great job shooting from the hip. Looks like you didn't need the F16's to beat the Rays. Lots of runs for the fans Charlie, should save some of those for the bad days. My Dodgers are doing well so far, as are my Kings hockey team.
