What a great shot Marchel. Was this some kind of event? Looks pretty darrn cool!

Posted by Bill Gassett, Metrowest Massachusetts Real Estate (RE/MAX Executive Realty) over 9 years ago

Wow! What beautiful pictures! I hope you are having a great Labor Day weekend! We are down on the "Texas Rivera" just enjoying the heck out of "not working"!

Marchel - These are some great shots!  What was the event?

Posted by Jason Crouch, Broker - Austin Texas Real Estate (512-796-7653) (Austin Texas Homes, LLC) over 9 years ago

BILL, This was the 4th of July at Lake Conroe.  We were having a boat parade and these guys did a flyover.

RUSSELL, I'm celebrating at Riveria Spring TX and having an easy going weekend.  I do plan on working tomorrow though which is okay since hubby has to work also.

JASON, I have to give credit for those great shots to our daughter Tarina.  Over the 4th we had a boat parade at Lake Conroe.  I think this was the first time ever to have both of our young adult children on our sail boat.  It was very cool!  I can't tell you the relief it is to have our son home and a college student!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Marchel, well Tarina hit the mark on those photos of the flyover. Very good photos and I must say it certainly is neat that she provides you access to these. Is it a point and shoot or something larger? The boat parade also sounds like maybe some photos are coming our way? I love learning about areas through photos. What we should do is after we run a photo on the wordless days is that we should follow up with the story about the photo the next day. That would be ye another way to reach out and teach about our areas or whatever the photo is about. I might give that a try and see if  an tie my photos to having even greater relevance. Trough your post Marchel, I talked my self into yet another exploration. Funny how that happens when inspired by photos.

Marchel, how wonderful, Tarina did a fantastic job with these photos! A boat parade huh? That sounds like fun too!

Marchel, these are great photos, it is cool that you were able to get such clear photos of the flyover!  Thanks for sharing them with us.

Marchel, how COOL and what GREAT shots! Perfect formation -- and I love the engine clouds -- perfect capture!

Posted by Marney Kirk, Towson, Maryland Real Estate (Cummings & Co. Realtors) over 9 years ago

Marchel, What awesome photos. I especially like the little cloud puffs from the engines,

Posted by Monique Hailer, South West Florida & Southern Maryland Homes (Schooner Bay Realty., Inc. & CENTURY 21 New Millenniun) over 9 years ago

WILLIAM, I have been thinking for a long time about doing a post with the pictures of the 4th of July boat parade.  Maybe tomorrow will be the day.

ANDREA, It was great fun having both kids on our sail boat.  She did a great job with these and more.  I guess I need to work on that post.

TONY and DARCY, I have to give our daughter credit for these pictures.  She has quite the eye.

MARNEY, Our daughter made some great catches there.

MONIQUE, I thought those cloud puffs from the engine were cool also.

Love those air shows Marchel, particularly the flyovers of the older planes.

Posted by Gary Woltal, Assoc. Broker Realtor SFR Dallas Ft. Worth (Keller Williams Realty) over 9 years ago


Like Gary I too love watching the older classic crafts flyover. We have a lot of crop dusters in our area. They are fun to watch also. Great shots!

Posted by Trey Thurmond, College Station , Texas Homes (BCR Realtors) over 9 years ago

Hi Marchel,

Great photos!  I love air shows!  Thank you for sharing the flyover photos with us.  Have a great Labor Day!



Posted by Rita Minion (O'Brien Realty) over 9 years ago

Hi Marchel,

Love these photos, that must have been a fun event!

Posted by Lynda Eisenmann, Broker-Owner,CRS,CDPE,GRI,SRES, Brea,CA, Orange Co (Preferred Home Brokers) over 9 years ago

Hi Marchel, hope you are having a peaceful Labor Day Weekend.   In these pictures all can see they flew with such precision.... these pilots had much practice to perform like this!  ... And your daughter captured it seamlessly!  (Have you noticed how your audience seems to just sit in expectation to see what you are going to post next?)  I'm one of 'em... (in my active seasons)


Posted by Diane Rice, SFR, SRES, CNC ( Rice Prprty Mgmnt & Rlty, LLC, South Holland, IL) over 9 years ago

Marchel, Your daughter did a fabulous job, it's difficult to capture those planes they are moving SO fast!  I love air shows and go twice a year, we just had one yesterday here.  I'm glad you got to enjoy it.

Marchel  Beautiful day plus colorful planes plus experienced photographer = cool pictures  Karen

Were those members of the Confederate Air Force? When my marketing guru drove me through Midland, he had to stop to see the Confederate Air Force since they were based there.

Posted by Jim Frimmer, Realtor & CDPE, Mission Valley specialist (HomeSmart Realty West) over 9 years ago

Hi Marchel - Great shots! Were these vintage planes? I love air shows!


Posted by Debi Boucher, "Realtor Showcase" - Real Estate Photography/Virtual Tours ( Real Estate Showcase Photography) over 9 years ago

Your daughter is a gifted photographer!  Beautiful pictures.

Posted by Irene Tron over 9 years ago

Those old planes are very cool, and scary at the same time, to me!  I love to look at them in the air, but I don't want to be UNDER them! =o/

Posted by c m over 9 years ago

When we lived out by Edwards Airforce Base in California, we would attend a few air shows (when I was younger). They were always amazing, whether they were in the air or we were checking them out on the ground. Its amazing what those pilots can do.

Posted by John Cannata, Texas Home Mortgage - Purchase or Refinance (214-728-0449 over 9 years ago

GARY, I love air shows also.  We use to got to them all the time but have not been to one in years.  This happened to be a fly over of a boat parade.

TREY, We love the old planes also.  Our family likes just about any kind of plane. 

RITA, Thanks for stopping by.  I had a wonderful quiet Labor day.

LYNDA, It was a fun event.  William got me going on getting the rest of the photos ready.  I'm going to put it up tomorrow.  I did not think I should put an Independence day event up on Labor Day (lol).

DIANE, It is very cool that I get to use all my daughter's wonderful pictures.  Since she is not using her graphic art degree I am glad to see her using her eye through the camera lens.

CAROLE, I'm jealous.  I love air shows but we don't get to go much living here in Houston.  We use to got to McConnell Air force base every year.  This was actually just a fly by at a boat parade.




Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) over 9 years ago

KAREN, Thanks!!  I love sharing our daughter's pictures.  She truly has that eye.

JIM, Years ago I remember going to the Confederate Air Force but I don't think these planes came from there.  To be honest I'm not sure where they came from but it was very cool!

DEBI, I love air shows also but in this case it was a fly by so I don't know a thing about these planes.  We were actually on a sail boat.  It was a boat parade over the 4th and our daughter took the pictures.  I'm going to put the rest of the pictures on tomorrow.  I didn't think I should put a 4th of July boat parade on Labor Day.

IRENE, I think she is a gifted photographer also!! 

CHERYL, In this case there was a whole lake under them.

JOHN, We love air shows.  We even went to the ultimate air show in Wisconsin once.

Both shots are great. I like the first one for the "vapor trails" and the second for the formation. :)

Very special shots that are now featured on "Speechless SUndays." Congratulations. :)


Posted by Steve Hoffacker, Certified Aging In Place Specialist-Instructor (Steve Hoffacker LLC) over 9 years ago

I can't think of a unique adjective so I will simply say: stunning!  What glorious blue skies and  "vapor tails"

Posted by Diane Aurit, Lake Norman Real Estate (LKN Realty, LLC) over 9 years ago

that is wonderful..I love watching those old planes.. :)   gorgeous photo

Marchel, Those are some great photos. What deep blue skies you have. Looks like a fun show as well.

How awesome, Marchel.  That's making a full day event out of the 4th of July, isn't it?

Very cool~!  I still need to post my photos of the CN Airshow! Love them :-)

Posted by Liz Moras Migic, Chilliwack, British Columbia - Realtor over 9 years ago

Hi Marchel.  Are you piloting one of those planes?

Posted by Richard T. Dolbeare, R(B), ABR, CRS...Hawaii Multi-Island Specialist (Keller Williams Realty Maui) over 9 years ago

I see lots of people calling them "vapor trails," so I just thought that I would contribute here by letting everyone know that the more correct term is "contrails."

Posted by Russel Ray, San Diego Business & Marketing Consultant & Photographer (Russel Ray) over 9 years ago

Marchel - looks like you had a very nice day for an air show. Great shots!

Marchel, Great post. I really like the photos. Thanks to your daughter for taking them and to you for shaing them with us.
Posted by Gary Coles (International Referrals), Latin America Real Estate (Venture Realty International) over 9 years ago

Marchel those are awesome shots and not very easy to capture.  Your daughter really takes great photographs and being a world travel has many subjects.

Marchel - Great pictures of the flyover.  You have excellent timing for such clear pictures. 

Posted by Susan Brown (Keller Williams NE, Kingwood Texas (Humble & Atascocita too)) over 9 years ago

ROBERT, I'm sure behind on responding to comments on this post.  Thanks for featuring this on clouds at Active Rain.

STEVE, My daughter is a really good photographer.  When I try to take shots like this it gets lost in the vapor trail.

DIANE, I'm ready to see those beautiful blue skies again.  We had no rain all summer and now the faucet won't turn off!!

KONNIE, I love the old planes also.  I really don't even know what these were.

RANDY, We do have some beautiful blue skies and hopefully they will be returning soon.  Our ground is a soggy mess right now.

HEATHER, This was a very cool 4th as we had both of our adult children with us.  WAY COOL!!

ROBERT, An International Air show; I'm jealous.  We love air shows but don't get to many now that we live in Houston.


Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) over 9 years ago

CARLA, It was a beautiful fly over and our daughter caught it so beautifully!

LIZ, I love air shows!!  I just wish that I was able to attend more of them.  This was just a flyover so we only got a taste.

RICHARD, My husband took me up in a Cessna 150 when we were dating and that was probably about the quietest he has ever seen me.  My only response was "Is everything okay".

RUSSELL, I learned the correct name for vapor trails but who knows if I will remember it tomorrow (lol).  I will try though.

MIKE, It was a beautiful day and even more so because we had both of our children with us!!  What a relief to have our son out of the Army and a college student.

CRYSTAL, It was a fun day, very windy but fun!

KATHY, It was a cool flyover.

STEVE, This was take from a sailboat and yes it was fun!

CARYREALESTATE, Our daughter is quite the photographer.  I think she does a great job!!

GARY, Thanks for stopping by.  I will tell her what you said.

JENNIFER, She does have a lot of subjects.  She just put new pictures from an Island by Italy on Flickr tonight.

SUSAN, I have to give our daughter the credit for these pictures.  It was soooooooo much fun having them both on our sailboat that day!!
