Back in late August I was able to witness a free and spectacular show that Chicago puts on which is the largest free show of its kind in the United States. It is an event where people join on the rim of the lake or hang out on their boats and watch all kinds of air and water tricks consisting of stunt planes, military planes, Thunderbirds (similar to Blue Angels), skydivers, jet skiers, and more. It was an absolute beautiful day to see this event and to photograph it. My favorite part was the Thunderbirds so I tried to capture the amazing stunts they did. They would literally rip over our heads at tree line level producing a loud and super powerful noise, breaking the sound barrier. I hope these photographs give you an idea of what it is was like, but you really just have to be here to get the full experience.
