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!

Playing with Fire

Another picture from the Menasha food truck event thing!  We were just laying on the grass and enjoying the music where a group of fire performers moved in. 

Hot lady in more ways than one!  Just kidding!

Taken with my Panasonic Lumix LX7 – a handy little camera with a great lens.  Only 10mp but who needs more.   I purposely slowed down the shutter just a bit to get some movement blur – especially the flames.

Hey Mister!

Hey Mister!  What ya doin’ down there?

The things you see laying on the ground in Menasha!  This was taken on a Thursday evening while watching the clouds go by. 

You don’t need a fancy camera – just carry a camera with you and have it ready at all times.

Water

Water and the Spirit.  A young girl receives a precious gift!

While the picture looks so peaceful in fact the baby cried the whole time!  No matter – still was a beautiful ceremony.  Taken with Canon 135mm f/2  and is a crop of a much larger scene.  With the 135 I find I need a shutter speed of at least 1/200 to avoid motion blur – fortunately f/2 is totally great with this lens.  You can see how much detail is in focus even wide open.
