I always feel like a kid again when I see a launch. It also reminds me of what mankind can accomplish... Plus I'm a big geek and just dig rockets.

I never got my arse in gear to travel across the state to see a shuttle launch. They still looked really great from the Tampa area, especially the night shots!

WOW!! THATS a looooooooooooong exposure. Hours?!?!?



I SO need the remote for my camera....it has a 30 sec (too short) shutter setting before 'bulb'. And I coudnt just hold the button down... too much movement. I tried. :)

THAT is truly spectacular!

Might look that way if you were, you know, experienced...

There was a steady wind from the north, observed from on a dock, at the park on the NW corner of Pineda Causeway and US1. 5 mph+

The effect can be done by having the camera in a dark location, and briefly illuminating the foreground foliage with a flash. Razor sharp, and not overexposed.

At least thats what i am gonna try. :)

Got some pro gear now, best learn how to use it.

Yeah...I used to pro photo....had a Mamiya RZ67...with several lens...but people wanted me to do weddings, etc. and that is not what I wanted to do. I wanted to be Ansel Adams...but somehow didn't have quite the talent or resourcefulness that he had. And people around here just don't want to buy shots such as that one. You need to sell to books , etc.
And it was not cheap to own and buy constant film and printing fees.
Loved doing it tho.
