Hi Everyone, long time no post! I went to the river and attempted to capture some shots of the launch: i was about 35 miles downrange. A wide angle view: with 70-200VR/TC 1.7: My favorite shot even though teeny-tiny: boosters falling away A dolphin surprised me while waiting for crowds to clear: And one last shotbefore I left. The fat part in the middle of the cloud is the result of when you hear " Go with throttle up" ..which is a chilling sentance for me. The first shuttle launch I viewed live was the tragic one on that very cold january day.
