It’s Air Show Time Again!

It’s that time of year again and we’re praying for the rain to stop before sunrise on Saturday. This year is a special treat for local photographers at the Wings Over Houston air show since they’ve finally set aside space for shooters and arranged for some flight line passes to be available. I guess my bitching griping must have worked!

  2. Thanks for the Twitter reply on the lens, who would’ve thought Moose would chime in!

    I have an older 70-300 Canon lens which I’ll take, no IS unfortunately but I’ll use the high speed burst mode on my 50D and hopefully keep them sharp.

    Thanks again…

    • Hey Sean,

      I’ve heard that the grass parking at Ellington is flooded so I’m not sure if I’ll be attending on Saturday. I don’t have a 4-wheel drive truck and would hate to get stuck there late Saturday.
