Back in the Saddle after a much-needed road trip and extended weekend
My disappointment goes out to our wonderful Government. Due to all the Sequester mumbo jumbo lately, numerous air shows are being cancelled around the country, Cleveland, Dayton, Thunder over Louisville and many more. What a shame that the very aircraft our taxpaying dollars bought cannot be enjoyed in the air this spring and summer. Of course, North and South Korea has been seeing a few of these in the air lately.
These shots are from the National Air Force Museum in Dayton Ohio, if you have never been there it is a great place to visit. The complex has 3 huge hangars along with a 4th in the works. Leave yourself a lot of time as this place is huge with loads of things to see and learn about. One of the great things about this place is that it is FREE, no charge for entry and NO tripod police! Hope everyone had a great Easter!

The lighting in the hangars was a bit tricky to say the least, there were spotlights everywhere, colored and white and no way to get them out of the frame but it really didn’t bother my fun one bit! These were all shot using the Canon 5D Mark III teamed up with the 16-35 L and my favorite 8-15mm L Fisheye. All brackets captured using the Promote control.
Thanks for stopping, have a great week.
