Hi Keith.
Am I correct in thinking you have posted the lightning strike before? It is hard to believe that the two pictures could be taken only minutes apart!
This too is a great shot.

Cheers Graham.

Thanks guys :)

Yes, this one had been posted.  I took a look at the times for each image and they are within a few minutes.  This was a nasty thunderstorm that moved through.  I was shooting in a downpour and wiping the lens dry every shot.  Me and the gear were totally soaked.  The roughness on the pavement is actually rain hitting standing water.
Here's a shot as we were waiting out the storm afterwards:

Nice shots as always Keith!

Here is one of the F35B taking off in full afterburner at the recent MCAS Cherry Point show:

Beautiful

Did you use a colored filter, or was this natural light?

Hi Chasinglight.
Nice series of shots.

Hello, here are several images from the Rockford Airfest 2014 which took place in Rockford Illinois last weekend.


Hi Keith.
Great set of warbird pictures, all very good but I think this one is stunning!

Cheers Graham.

Hi Jim.
Really nice shot, I love to see the discs in the afterburner cone, such a cool phenomenon.

Cheers Graham.

Hi Keith.
That sounds like a lot of water for gear to deal with! Guessing it all survived, were you using a rain cover of some kind or just relying on canon weather sealing?
They are some big splashes, nice shot to set the scene.

Cheers Graham.


The roughness on the pavement is actually rain hitting standing water.
Here's a shot as we were waiting out the storm afterwards:

Thanks Graham :)  No protection.  Seals and design were proven to be effective.  :)  I did have to wipe the lens's front element off every shot.

I was reading this article earlier about the worlds first aerial protechnic display team. I would love to shoot this! There is potential for some great photography of this!

1Dx + 200-400; I ran the shutter up as fast as I could get away with, but there never is enough light is there?

...But then if the performers slow the hell down and get closer, things like this happen.  Jim

Nice captures Jim!  Lighting is always an issue at airshows if you're a paying spectator.  At the Avalon show here the flight line gets some reasonable morning sun but most of it is gone by the time the flying program starts after 10am and the afternoon shots are all backlit.
