THE WILD BLUE YONDER


Saturday Mr. Mapper and his family and Hubby and I went to see the Blue Angels. This took place at the California Capital Airshow. The thunderous sound of six F-18 Blue Angels flying over our heads at 800 mph was awesome. The clouds were awesome too. Over the next few days I will share some of the shots I took with my little Sony Cybershot camera. I hope you will enjoy them.
Be sure to enlarge the photo to see the details.

Good Monday morning, Sue.
I hope this beginning week will be happy to you.

I am always admiring, how fine pictures you can get by your "little Sony" as you said.
Like today`s clouds and those plains, they are so alive as enlarged, thank you for the show!

How nice of the clouds to cooperate! Amazing pic.

Sue, Watching the Blue Angels is always a thrill. You took a fine photo--not easy to capture, either!

Anna said...

PRETTY Sue!

MedaM said...

The photo is really worthwhile to be enlarged; it is just impressive and fantastic!

Great photo! I love going to air shows, but I haven't been to one in quite a while. With two young sons, we went to many air shows over the years. But it's starting to be a rare occurrence now, the insurance is far too high for many of the smaller shows.

\wow, what a beautiful sight!

Annie said...

I giggled for a second after reading your comment about how you and heights don't get along and then coming to see you watching the Blue Angels. You like heights from a particular vantage point, I think.

Carole said...

lovely clouds. well done capturing the plane too.

Sue, I would say the skies set a beautiful stage for those Blue Angels, and this is a perfect shot, doing justice to both.

This is an awsome picture. Can't wait to see the rest of your shots. I love airshows and have to wait until October for ours.

That is a beautiful sky with some wonderful clouds.
Always trilling to see those planes...

I'm totally amazed at this shot. I was at a Blue Angels show once but my pictures didn't capture anything that captured the feeling.

Hi Sue! Thanks for your comment on La China again. I always love it when I know you have stopped by. And your comments are wonderful and make my day. You are right, life is pretty darn good.

I love this shot of the clouds and Blue Angel. I used to love going to the AFB and seeing the airshows.

Great pic with the clouds, I like air shows.
Mr mapper has a nice pic of the event also.

Blue Angels are awesome. Thanks for sharing.

I didn't know they were performing in Sacramento. The Blue Angels and Thunderbirds are always fun to watch. Sounds like you and Mr. Mapper had a great time.

Ben said...

Absolutely gorgeous image, Sue. This is definitely larger is better. Have you consider printing this large? If you have drought, try 15"x10" for starter. I think it is still small for this great image.
I love how you capture sun at the corner and well controlled light, volume of cloud and trail of those F-18s. Fantastic!

Very cool!
