The Blue Angels are the annual highlight of fleet week here in San Francisco. I have been to so many fleet week festivities over the years that this week I decided to forgo the air show and rather get out to the Golden Gate Bridge area during their practice show. I spent a couple of hours chasing them around the skies and after a couple of dozen shots had a few good enough to post. It is so difficult getting shots of the Blue Angels. They fly so fast and so low in the sky that half the time you don't even know where they are coming from until they are literally right on top of you.
They are truly amazing to watch. The above photo is a maneuver where they fly upside down during a downward spiral. They also fly so close to each other that it is a bit scary at times. I am also going to try and get on at least one of the ships this week. Notice I said try. There are literally hundreds of people doing the same so we'll see. Until next week, enjoy the show.
