They're doing a national flyover tour and later today will be over Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, and New Orleans. I think the whole four-city route will take them about 15 fifteen minutes. stooges

No, really. They hit Dallas at 11, Houston at 12:30, and New Orleans at 1:45, exiting there at 2:05. Ludicrous speed, indeed.

Anyway, I don't know if we'll be able to see much from where I live as the flight path is a little west of here. But I plan to take my DSLR and long lens to the school grounds at the corner where it's a little more open and see if I can catch anything.

Check Blue Angels on social media where they post their tour dates, routes, and times.

I almost missed them. I expected them to be over there (northwest) and when they first appeared they were over there (west and south of us).

I got one okay shot and one of them behind the tree with just vapor trail. If we had stayed at the house, I might have had a better view. facepalm

Looks like you got them to me.

I've shot lots of action, volleyball, ballet, burlesque, an attempt to capture a bird or two.

None of it's easy, that's a nice image!!!!!


There is never enough time to be in a hurry...

Perfect timing too, between the trees. The trees add some perspective and help make the shot work.

I went to college for photography - yes a poor life decision.
One of my teachers said "You have to be ready to be lucky."

It looks like you were ready. Those jets weren't in that spot for long!!!!!

Yeah. I have a shot that I took immediately after that one, all you can see is the dispersing vapor trail going behind the tree!
