Went to see the Blue Angels today. I got to make up for not having my camera with me when the Thunderbirds were here last year.

Beautiful! This almost looks like a watercolor - such gorgeous shading, and the exhaust is making such a nice, muted background for the sky pilots! :-)

Great shot! It is cool how the jet streams have enough contrast to stand out from the cloud cover.

Thank you for your kind comments.

There was some cloud cover and kind of hazy (plus the smoke). In that shot they had just entered the sunshine.

If you ever get the chance to see the Blue Angels (US Navy) or the Thunderbirds (US Air Force) go! and take your camera. They do some amazing things such as flying inverted at 600 MPH with parts of the aircraft within 18" of each other.

The only differences between these F-18 Hornets and an "ordinary" one on a aircraft carrier are the smoke trail and the paint job.Thepilots rotate through, usually doing this assignment for 2 or3 years only.Here's closer look at the aircraft:
