When Birds Dream
Jonathan Blue Angel Seagull. Spring 2010. Charleston, SC. Blue Angels. Afghanistan. Airlift. Charleston Harbor.
The norm for the Blue Angels when performing in Charleston is to flex their Too Cool Skillz at the CAFB in North Charleston. March of 2010 President O had ordered an increase of our efforts in Afghanistan. The Blue Angels were scheduled for the weekend of April 10th. Initially the Air Show was announced as canceled. BIG downer.
But just a couple weeks, maybe a spot less, it was announced that special dispensation had been worked out for the Blue Angels to... PUT ON AN HISTORIC AIRSHOW OVER THE CHARLESTON HARBOR! The first time *ever* over the Charlestom Peninsula area. I'll save any more about the excellence that came from that but I will say - a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
This image was the Angels out over the Harbor on the down sweep of a five plane loop. I saw the seagull coming into the frame and hoped I would time it correctly. He could be watching the Angels himself and thinking, "When I grow up I want to fly like an Angel." #herodreamsimaging #canon5dmarkiii #aerialphotography
