    I haven't posted much lately. Busy at work and busy at night working through and processing all my images from the air show last weekend. Very overcast day with low ceilings. So, my apologies for the washed out backgrounds. At least I didn't have to worry about shooting into the sun.:wink:

    All shot with a D300, Sigma 100-300mm f/4 APO EX DG HSM, some with the Sigma 1.4X EX DG teleconverter

    Here are a few. Thanks for looking.

    This isn't the best shot, technically, but check out the vapor streaming off these guys.

    Thank you Joe. I was in the section just to the left of show center, next to the VIP section, in the top row of the bleachers. If you can't get a press pass, the next best place to be, I think.
