Accompanied by the roaring sounds of the air show, thousands packed the Canadian National Exhibit grounds Monday for the fest's final day. Ending with a week-long run of summery temperatures, organizers said this year's attendance finished at around 1.4 million. According to CNE general manager David Bednar, the numbers were up from last year. Still, despite the larger draws, Bednar was feeling a little blue Monday afternoon.

Finally got out to the airshow, and I have the sunburn (plus glasses marks on my face) to prove it. I shot these in Shutter Priority mode to keep them sharp, with a shutter speed of around 1/1000 at ISO 100. The aperture varied between f/4.5 and f/10. I set exposure compensation +1 AV to make up for the bright sky, used motor drive and AI servo mode to keep a lock on the moving subject.

(Last year I decided to go flying instead. It just didn’t seem the same without Arliin there, and I wanted to be up in the sky.) This year I found myself wanting the Arliin connection again and didn’t take nearly as many photos as I did two years ago. Arliin and I spectated the airshow twice in 2007
