J-A, if you can't get pecans, try peach cobbler, that is another local favourite

Going back through the "few" shots I took at Wings Over Houston, I found this little gem hiding in plain sight. Nothing fancy about the shot, but it was on the high speed pass and I managed to catch my first shock wave. Was hoping for vapor galore, but I'll take this for sure

A stereo-X pair of lenticular wave clouds above a stand of bare aspens, in South Park, Colorado. It's winter at 10,000 feet; all that's missing is the snow.

Color or mono?

Astrobrian,

Nice catch on the shockwave; there is a weaker shock several feet behind the first one. Sometime the background has enough detail/texture to reveal other shocks off the canopy, air inlets, wingtips, etc.

Color for me Steve. I drove thru there on the way to our CB place last week. Plenty of snow just beyond your shoot. Our place at 9400' had a good 4" of fresh.

Always enjoy the Blue Angels Home Coming Show. If these guys don't get your heart to pumping nothing is going to.

You know, the more I think about credentials, the less I care. This is kind of like the people who whine because they don't get across the ropes access to every air show. They haven't earned it, don't deserve it in many cases, and they are taking up space and resources that are needed for someone like Darren Heath, who has an actual purpose for being there besides shooting cool pix for himself. My guess is, as long as they let me haul big glass around and I can be with Y'all, it'll be just fine. If they come through, that'll be fine as well, but I have zero aspirations toward becoming an F1 circuit stringer. I can't afford the pay cut for one thing

I'd much rather do what Tim describes, and wander around cool tracks with great access, shooting cool shots.

Heck, I don't use half the credentials I get, just because you don't need them if you have the right gear and eye. AFW is a perfect example. Y'all capture outstanding imagery from the vantage points you discover, simply because you're talented. In fact, you regularly outshoot me, and I'm out getting my eyebrows singed.

Thanks Paul. Now to get that humidity to cooperate for a cone

Rusty, love that shot of the dirty roll.

Steve, mono for me if going for the gloominess of winter.

Jim, it depends on the venue on whether or not badged access gets you the goods. I know with the shots I did during shuttle missions, without badging you really had to work to get good stuff. Nothing beats up close though. With airshows, I can see your point having been on both sides of the rope.

Very nice race coverage Jo! Race 13 and I have an appointment in the air in the next few days. James is a wizard with those aircraft and has become the Berkut go to guy.
