    Sweet!!! Got anymore of those?

    Thanks for sharing.
  3. Sure, here is one more, taken a couple of seconds earlier.


    I like how the orbiter exhaust is visible in this photo.

    It was a hot and VERY MUGGY day, not good for telephoto shots.
  4. Great shots of the launch. You were lucky to be there.
