Only ONE photo????

The Launch.
After 18 years in Tampa, I finally made the drive to see the launch. I told myself I'd do it this time, come hell or high water. Well, the drive over was hell and high water, and some hail, funnel clouds, traffic jams, etc. The shuttle, according to the radio, was three miles up and going 3,000 mph before the sound reached us on the other side of the intracoastal. 2.25 hour drive there, 2 minute launch, 2.5 hours home, and worth every second.

This shot was taken at 80mph on the way out with my head hanging out the window upside down, about 45 minutes after the launch. I'm thinking it's the vapor trail. (Winds were to the south and west and that's where I was.)

Nice pictures. Too bad one can't hear the sound to the pictures. That must be very impressive.
The sound coming across the water was extraordinarily cool. Water conducts sound so well. This might not make sense, but standing there, it was like I could see the sound come across, a giant invisible thing. There were just as many oh's and ah's when the sound hit us as there were when the shuttle lifted off.

Thanks a million folks
This was a spectacular day

I have alot of processig to do.
Will get some more up by tomorrow:))))

I am still tired. Had a long day starting out at 6:30 AM. Met Harry and Mike for a bit of a shoot in Viera

Ran to work by 10:00 AM and then to the site to shoot shuttle and get a good seat, so to speak:>))))

Got home at 10:30 PM. I stayed after the others left so I would not have to battle traffic.
Smoothe ride home:>)))

Where we were shooting someone put on heck of a fireworks show after all had left.
So what a great day

Great folks and lots of fun
