    For the first time in 5 years of going to the Cable show, the weather was pretty crappy. It was cool and cloudy all day on Saturday, and even colder on Sunday until about 1 PM. The sun finally came out and brought some cool lighting. Here are some samples:

    As always Eric, exceptional, exceptional.:notworthy: :thumbright: I really like the B-25 shot and the last one with the three Stearman and the lead craft I'm not sure of.

    Thanks Aaron. The lead ship is a Ryan PT-22 Recruit.

    How did I miss this one. Great shots as usual Eric. Another couple of shows like that and you might just be ready to shoot a British airshow :evil4: ;)

    Been there, done that, Gnomey! Two years at Mildenhall Air Fete were the toughest lighting conditions to shoot in. I was beginning to feel deja-va with this one.

    Yeah, know the feeling. 2/3's of the time I've been to an airshow here, it has either rained or been really low cloud. Only had one sunny show so far so it does make a challenge but get it right and the shots can come out really great with some interesting lighting.

    You made the low overcast work well for that shot, but I prefer bluer skies, as I am sure you do.

    Of course but that is still one of my favourite aircraft shots I've taken. Blue skies make life so much easier though as I'm sure you know.
