Blue Angels, 1017 and Lanai Lookout/Kokohead Botanical, 11/11/15

Life is good but sometimes there is not enough time for everything. This is a collections of photos I did with Derek and Milton S.

This is definitely a challenging photo event for many reasons. One being that there is a long wait before the Blue Angels perform however going early is helpful with getting a parking space.

Here are some of the shows before the Blue Angels. I am happy to say the pilot is a lady. She started this career later in life. It was a joy to see her fly and do her tricks.

There were other parachuters performing.

This guy was amazing. He did a lot of twirls.

Voila, the Blue Angels.
Did I mention challenging to capture them. Yup - so I am sharing these 2 to show, yes I was there.

Number 5 trains to fly upside down.
I forgot to mention, Steve also was with us.

So happy that on Veteran's Day, the weather was perfect.

Looking the other directions, a very green Kokohead.

Although this bird is not in focus, I was happy to have it fly across. I tweaked this photo by putting a gradient in the sky since it was too bright.

Most of the plumeria trees were bare so I was happy with the above plumerias.

We certainly had fun. Look forward to another outing, Derek and Milton.

Thanks EV. From my angle - the Blue Angels were flying mighty close. Due the weather, they did fly very high. Lots of booming sounds. The croton plants had beautiful light on them.
