Blue Angels in Diamond Formation

     
  Blue Angels in Diamond Formation  
     
The US Navy Blue Angels fly in a tight diamond formation over Andrews AFB.
 
Air show photography tip: Jets fly fast and have no fast-moving visible parts (such as a propeller), so use a fast shutter speed to get sharp shots. Try to shoot at 1/1000 sec or faster and always pan with the aircraft.
 
Or get creative - try a panning motion-blur shot to show speed.
 
Notice the clouds framing the diamond formation.
