Thank you. This was shot using an Kodak DX digital camera. The 10X optical zoom is equivalent to about a 400mm lens. The video of the launch that I shot is at Interspace (Click on video vault). I shot this image left handed and blind because I was shooting video at the time. I will post the close up pad shots in the future.

Wow ... add the above information of yours and wow, doesn't quite cut it. Very impressive.

You shot this blind? Unbelievable, I have heard about eyes in the back of your head ... but ... but ... none at all? I jest. A little. Your composition then, if I may, is extremely well balanced. Really nice work.

And all the more impressive for the historical significance of this shot. I sincerely look forward to seeing more from you.

Vroom vroom! Oops wrong vehicle. I can't make that sound...well I can but it sounds like something else. Nice shot

Nice photo - really.
STS? - I see the tool kit falling away from the orbiter! What are they learning besides how to drink recycled urine?

I'd be glad to hug a Saguaro.
