Blue Angels: Seafair practice
Posted By: OrenMc, 08-01-2009, 04:53 AM

I just got off work so I didn't have any time to position myself but it was fun anyway. These guys flying overhead and the noise of the turbines is spectacular.
I didn't post any that were too far away. Shooting through the heat and haze doesn't work very well.

This has a bit of distance though but it was the only shot I got of the with all 6 in formation.

I was really happy when I looked at this photo because I could read the letters on the lens. I love my Sigma 100-300 f4

I sure wish I could get some shots of them doing some manuevers but I hate fighting crowds. Maybe I can figure something out tomorrow. I will post if I do.
Hope you enjoyed

Excellent shots Oren, even got the guy scratching his buttocks!

Thanks for sharing them. Love the Blue Angels, you just can't beat that paint job, beautiful. Although I've always had a soft spot for the Thunderbirds since my brother was Air Force.
