Blue Angels & Moon
Just got home from the Air Show at Jones Beach… been going for years now. I’ve been trying very hard to “hone” my skills at shooting these incredible pilots and their machines whipping over head. I’m in awe of them. Giddy like a little kid when these F18′s come screaming across the Atlantic straight at you.
Started going through some of the images and I just fell in love with this shot. So I’ll post it as one of many to come… The Angels are “breaking” apart from formation which is neat in and of itself… but if you look closely, right beneath the #3 jet… there is a crescent moon peaking into the shot. I love serendipity like this… didn’t even know I got it- was focusing on the action, not on the environment, but I gotta tell ya, gives me goose bumps looking at it.
A bunch more photos to come, but enjoy this one, its a personal favorite. Can’t wait to print it BIG
