Thunderbirds!

Scott Air Force Base had an airshow last weekend to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the opening of the base. It’s been 5 years since the last airshow so the crowds were large. On Friday though they had an open house for all of us ID card holders. The stars of the show were the Thunderbirds. Here are a couple of shots of them in action.

Originally from Oregon and after a career in the Air Force I ended up settling down in the St. Louis area. I have always taken pictures but seven years ago I decided it was time to really start learning the art of photography. Between work and family what little free time is spent out exploring the region. I am fascinated with nature, the man-made world and the interaction between them. This is especially apparent in all of the urban decay that exists in St. Louis. Nature is reclaiming so many areas while the people who live there do their best to hang on. I also have a degree in Graphic Design so patterns, shapes, and textures also speak to me.
