January was time to work on some Warbirds

I know that I blogged too little last year.  With our adventure to Alaska and then through the Yokon, Northwest Territory, British Columbia and Alberta back South there really were too few bad weather days (yes a strange sort of complaint) in order to process images, update photography websites and blog!

I also struggled with the separate of my photography blog and our fulltime RVing blog.  I think I have that one resolved now. (If you are interested in our RVing blog you can subscribe at www.fulltimervingwiththekings.com).

So in January, in Southern California I worked on some of the warbird images from 2016.  Here are a few, to acquire any just click on the picture and it will take yo to the sales page.  To see all of the January images click HERE.

It is always very special to see a heritage flight and here we were treated to a two ship formation of the F-35A Lightning II and P-51D Mustang one at fairly full throttle ad one a tad above stall speed!

This was the first (and sadly last as the flight was being retired after the show) time of seeing the two ship Dassault Mirage 2000N display team.  They were fantastic to watch and flew a great show with just two aircraft.  Here is one in airshow uniform.

Always a special treat to watch the Red Arrows.  Precision flying at its best.  Here a moody image in black and white (reflecting the moody weather!)

Always a photographer’s delight to get an image of a modern jet fighter being put through its paces and creating a lot of condensation over the wings.
