AWESOME shots Dave!!! My favs are #2 and 3.
What settings and lens for #3? Looks like you're in the air with them and they are bearing down on you!

thanks everyone for the kind words!

#3 is shot at ISO 160 , F6.3 1/1250 Shutter speed

 

I was on the ground however we plan this shot where we look at how the Tbirds did their routine and position ourselves on location for this shot. They were doing a loop and just follow the jets and get the right angle.

 

The Dawn was beautiful with a pink hue in the sky! I had to wake up real early to go get those Dawn shots!  LOL!
