Riverside Airshow 2006
Crowd and Rain shots

Here is a view of the crowds from the hill near the control tower. This is a great vantage point for taking pictures. It is also the furthest from any refuge from the rain. It started once we got up there and we had quite a walk to get out of the rain.


Once in the relative dry of a tent shelter, I took some shots of the people taking shelter wherever they could, including garages and under the wings of any airplane.

I was very close to packing up and heading for home. I was wet to the bone and starting to get cold. Then, another observer in the shelter we stood under pointed west. It looked positive! This shot was taken as things started to dry out.

We wandered back to the hill. The show was getting ready to start. This shot was taken a few hours later during a lull in the action.

 Gar Travis caught this "action shot" of  me and one of my fellow photograpers. That's me in the hat. The guy running security on the other side of the rope said the group looked like a syncronized machine. All lenses pointed in the same direction and following the airplanes.
