Blue Angels over Lake Winnebago

We went cruising last Saturday and enjoyed the water on Lake Poygan.  My love made a suggestion we cruise down to Oshkosh and maybe we could get a glimpse of the 5:00 airshow at EAA. 

As we entered Lake Winnebago at Oshoksh we could not believe all the boats just around the corner!  There must have been 500!  Good idea dear!

Finding a nice spot to drop anchor we were treated by an awesome display by the Blue Angels.  While I did not have my professional camera I did get some nice shots using my Lumix LX7.  I also caught some video – coming soon. 

  The planes are moving fast so it is imperative to use a fast shutter speed – this was at 1/500 second.  I also used a pretty closed, for the Lumix, aperture of 5.6.  Why?  To get a good depth of field and also to make sure everything was in focus. 

You never know what is around the next corner so have your camera ready!
