The Blue Angels were in town this weekend for Fleet Week in San Francisco. As we were trying to get over the Golden Gate Bridge Sunday afternoon, they were flying over and performing their stunts on the Bay.
What a thrill to look up and see them flying over!
Flying over Alcatraz Island.
These photos were taken by a professional photographer for the Chronicle, but I attempted to capture the excitement below with my Canon Rebel and telephoto lens.
Keep in mind, I took these photos in a moving car!
I just clicked away and hoped a few photos turned out.
It's so cool to see all the ships and sailboats on the Bay.
Looking west, the sun's reflection on the Pacific Ocean was blinding.
It was one of those rare days in San Francisco. The temperature on the bridge read 75 degrees.
It's usually 58! We had the Giants game on the radio and the Blue Angels overhead!
We got home just in time to see our beloved San Francisco Giants beat the Atlanta Braves!
It was all good on 10-10-10!
I'm linking up to Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
Just for fun, check out the video below. It really captures the exciting Blue Angels air show over San Francisco Bay.
