It's tough getting different colors within the smoke and the clouds, but you've captured both. Another awesome shot, Lisa!

I really appreciate that you paused to peek and for your kind comments. Thank you!
It was a real treat for me to have the opportunity to see (and HEAR) the Thunderbirds in action a few days ago, on 9/11.

Thanks should also go to the brave fighter pilots who control these machines. Pictured above is Capt. Nicholas Holmes, 31, the slot pilot for the U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron "Thunderbirds," flying the No. 4 jet.

Many thanks, Lisa♥

I've been a big fan of the Thunderbirds since my days in the Air Force. This is one of the best shots I've seen of them. Great job hand-holding a 500mm. Very sharp and clear. Awesome job Lisa!!! A fav.
