Hi All,

Bit of a while since I've posted a thread, but I thought you all might like to see some shots from "The Fastest Motorsport in the World". Had an ace trip last year, started in LA and finished in San Francisco, taking in Chino, the pacific coast highway, Yosemite and of course Reno. I'll post the images in batches as I edit them, so may as well kick off with the Wednesday & Thursday!

1) Spent Wednesday as a bit of a sighting day, still, the Voodoo crew provided some entertainment:

5) Blue Angels arrival

6) Thursday was much the same, still just enjoying the atmosphere! U2 flypast was great!

7) Great light all day, but the evenings are something special!

Thanks for looking so far, will add more as I work through the hilariously oversized Lightroom folder! In the meantime (shameless self promotion in 3, 2, 1..), you can read the review here: http://vintageaviationecho.com/reno-2016/

Thanks!

Here's some from Friday, my first day on the Pylons and I tell you what the photography is very, very challenging!

15) These are neat these Thunder Mustangs:

20) Jet noise! The pair of QRF-4's that flew in for static gave a couple of go arounds, shame I was shooting them at a bizarre angle!

Can't fault the photography, some terrific captures in here so far, but I must say I'm not a fan of most of the machines. If they aren't bastardised, they're generally horribly painted.

Have to say I agree, the Vampire is particularly poorly represented. :sick:
