Hes on your six!!! Hes on your six!!!

It is one again that time of the year, when very loud jet powered toys take to the skies to shatter the calm and quiet of Miramar. Yes its the Miramar Airshow ladies and gentlemen, and i for one am very excited. I love aviation and military aircraft in particular, so this time fo the year is always a nice treat for me. I went today and actually ended up going a lot later in the day than normal. My ploarizer bit the dust about a week ago and so i had to get a new one (actually i got 2) but of course had to wait until the store opened before i could get them. Store didnt open till 10 and so byt the time i would have gotten the filters and made my way out to Miramar i would have been shooting in gross 12:00 light. So i waited till later and got out there around 3:30 and just in time to see the Thunderbirds take off, the Blue Angels werent there this year so the Thunderbirds took their place. It was way cool to see a different team take the skies this year but i will admit that it didnt have the same impact on me as the Angels do. It was still amazing though, i had a blast got to shoot some cool photos blah blah blah. I could go on forever im so excited...........im glad that today was just the 1st day. Really looking forward to tomorrow to catch some night stuff and do some long exposures. Heres some from today. Enjoy!!


























parting shot....the end of a good day....
