This is an F16 Fighting Falcon jet, part of the U.S. Airforce’s fantastic air demonstration squadron, The Thunderbirds. They were part of the free airshow being held at Cocoa Beach, Florida. There’s nothing quite like standing on the beach as these planes shoot low overhead, and almost having your eardrums blown out by the cracking boom of their engines. They are definitely well named.

I am an avid photographer of 60+ and will shoot just about anything, although I’m not so good at moving objects. Anything faster than a snail leaves me for dead. (haha) I do prefer natural landscapes over urban ones but, really, nothing is safe from my lens. I also enjoy turning my failed images, and there are lots, into digital art.

In 2014 I started dabbling in Fractal Art using Apophysis 7x to satisfy my creative urges on the days when I can’t take photos.

    Super picture, Ann! I remember driving outside the fence of a military airfield in Germany, sunroof open, as a flight of F-15s took off right over me. Damn near blew me off the road! lol

  • I can believe that. The sound goes right through you. Thanks for the comment.:)

    Excellent shot, Ann. Great exposure!

  • Thank you Wendi. It was easy really. They were so close and their smoke sort of evened out the light for me. (lol):)

    This is wonderful but I like some in the road trip email even better. I’m enjoying hearing about all the fun and adventures and the pictures are incredible Ann.

  • Thank you for the feature and the wonderful comments Ann. I’m so glad you’re enjoying hearing about our trip too. We should be back in L.A. in time to catch up. BTW, what are you doing up so late!!!:)
