Blue Angel F-18 Hornet in the Clouds

A Blue Angel pilots his F-18 Hornet - seemingly above the clouds.
 
Air show photography tip: Most of us are not presented the opportunity to photograph elite aircraft demonstration teams from the air, but ... pressing the shutter release at the right time can create the illusion of having done so.
 
When the planes bank toward you, your position suddenly appears to be above them. Add the right cloud formations into the composition (and no earth-attached objects) and you have a shot that appears to have been taken from the air - above the aircraft.
