Artist's Description

THIS PHOTO OF THE THUNDERBIRDS, TURNED INTO A SILHOUETTE AS THEY STARTED “GETTING CLOSE TO THE SUN”. BUT, WITHOUT THIS EFFECT, THE PHOTO WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN MUCH. THERE WAS SO MUCH SMOKE IN THE SKY, THAT CORRECT COLORS WERE JUST ABOUT IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE. THIS SHOT WAS TAKEN AT TRAVIS AFB IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA BACK IN THE 1980’S. IT HAS BEEN SITTING IN A PHOTO ALBUM EVER SINCE WITHOUT SO MUCH AS A FLEA LOOKING AT IT. I AM GLAD THAT SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE ENJOY AIRCRAFT SHOTS AS MUCH AS I DO. I HOPE YOU ALL LIKE THIS ONE. THE ONE THING I DID DO DIGITALLY WAS ADD THE YELLOW COLOR TO THE SUN SPOT. THE REST OF THE PHOTO IS JUST AS IT CAME OUT OF MY 35MM CAMERA.
