I snapped a few photos of the Blue Angels Fleet Week show on Saturday with a lens I’ve been waiting to try out, a 500mm f/4. It was really one of the coolest things I’ve seen, and the pictures turned out pretty well. Afterward went to Golden Gate park for Kevin and Coley’s wedding pre-party, and then back to my place for dinner.

Nice pics !
I thought the 500mm would be even closer.
They were pretty far away. 🙂 The best were when they went right above, about 2/3rds down.
Good Job 🙂
These pics are very well defined
btw it was so nice to see you at the WordCamp 2010 @ Phil. Hope to see you again next year.
You should consider a picture-taking booth then @ 10$/pics :).. just kidding.. Cheers!!!

We were in town for this too and what an amazing experience just to feel the thunder of the performance above.

Air Shows can be a lot of fun to shoot.
