Photos and Commentary


  • This blog is mostly devoted to photography. I'm still learning, and each photograph I take teaches me more about how to do it better the next time.

    I like this quote by Jacques-Henri Lartigue: “I take photographs with love, so I try to make them art objects. But I make them for myself first and foremost - that is important.”

    Thanks for visiting!

“Skyblazers”

Posted by blueheronbobcat on April 7, 2010

This “Skyblazers” F-86F Sabre jet put on an exciting exhibition at the Tico Warbirds airshow in Titusville Florida recently. He was doing bombing and missile simulations, and did this napalm simulation as part of the show. I was panning on the speeding jet as it raced passed us, about 25 feet above the runway, when all of a sudden this huge ball of flames shot up from the ground. I immediately put the shutter in motion, hoping to get a shot as he flew past the flames. I was lucky, and got this photo.

Exif: 1/500 sec, f/18, ISO 200, 200mm (300mm 35mm equivalent)
