Fleet Week Airshow in San Francisco

12 Oct

There’s something special about watching military jets at airshows. The powerful rumble of jet engines flying low above your head, the sheer speed, the skill of pilots flying in graceful formation one minute and doing body-crushing aerobatics the next. It was all present on Saturday during Fleet Week in San Francisco. Sitting atop the Pier 39 garage with my Nikon Df and 70-300mm lens, shutter set at 1/1000 sec., I captured the action and enjoyed a perfect day on The Bay.
