Passing overhead as I was stood on Marina Green for the San Francisco Fleet Week celebrations in 2010. You can see the white interior of the engine intakes.

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    great sharp image, they look so cool!! these were so “thin” i thought it was the Patriots Aerial Team!!! great image buddy!!

  • thanks. I think that day I was very lucky with the conditions and my location. I did manage to annoy myself though, by switching the camera off right before the final pass of all 6 Blue Angels. I thought they’d finished and were recovering to SFO. Next thing I see them over Golden Gate Bridge and in my rush to switch the camera back on I accidentally knocked my image size settings from 9.1mp to just 2mp. It was one of my favourite pictures but I can’t do anything with it as it’s so small.

    Great shot. I saw them last year. What a wonderful time shooting. Would love to get a bigger lens now, LOL

  • Thanks, Tina. I took this with a bridge camera, a Sony DSC HX1 – So no special lenses were used. Added advantage of being virtually beneath the flight path. I believe all their shows for 2013 have now been cancelled. A shame as they’re a big draw. Hopefully they will be back in 2014.
