    Thanks! I couldn't get the shot last year but I was lucky to get a few decent shots this year. Even though I know where it's coming from and keep an eye out for it, they only do the 700+mph sneak pass once during the show :hs: I might have to try another location next year .. damn boats get in the way a lot of times for the low pass shots.

    Thanks :bigthumb: Yeah, there was a lot of stuff going on. I also wanted to go the Presidents Cup practice to get some shots since I live a few blocks from the venue but had work :hs:

    Fleet week was really disappointing this year. First time in 11 years that the Blue Angels canceled (on Saturday after about 3 minutes of flying). They did a semi-show on Sunday, despite the weather being even worse, but didn't do most of the impressive maneuvers :wtc:

    Cool shots though :cool:

    Thanks guys :bigthumb:

    Yeah, I've gone to Fleet Week dozens of times in the past and don't remember it being this cloudy/crappy weather. I heard about the Blue Angels canceling on Saturday and wasn't sure I should even go on Sunday. Even though it wasn't a full show, I'm glad they at least performed for a little bit.
