Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge

Blue Angels performing at Jacksonville Beach during air show.

My entry for this week’s photo challenge.

I don’t go to many air shows & it’s been 10 years since I’ve been. Seeing the Blue Angels in all their glory was on my bucket list. After 12 years in the Marine Corps, I never had a chance to see these F-18’s so close to my personal space. They soared with precision & with a huge smile on my face I could barely hold my camera still. My experience was especially awesome because this event is free & over the Atlantic Ocean. I shot these pics with my Nikon D50 (god rest it’s soul) & a 300mm telephoto lens. Very amatuer camera but took awesome photos…I was just starting out.

If you’ve never seen the US Navy’s Blue Angels, please take the time to do it. Live in or near the Jacksonville area or planning a trip, the Sea and Sky Air Show is October 26-27, 2019. Don’t miss your opportunity to see an incredible spectacle for yourself that will leave your adreline pumping for hours and a memory that will last a lifetime.

Blue Angels, Jacksonville Beach – 11/9/2009

  1. I was in the Civil Air Patrol as a kid and when I was 12 years old we got to spend a week at Patuxent River Naval Air Station where I got to have lunch with the Blue Angels every day. It was a really cool experience for a kid.
