Blue Angels Over Seattle from the Sky View Observatory

SVO asked me to get some shots of the Blue Angels over Seattle and Saturday made the most sense in my schedule.  The Sony a7r is not an action camera, but it really came through once I set the ISO high enough to let my manual focus Zeiss 100-300mm lens catch the planes.  Most of the building was on the east side, but I stayed on the west side hoping to catch them flying past the Space Needle.  I basically got two chances, and during the second go, every shot was sharp and in focus.  Really pleased with the results for a hand held, manual focus lens.  www.mikereidphotography.com #blueangels #seafair
