    First attempt to photograph the Space Shuttle from up close today. Photo's taken standing to the side of the VAB bldg on site. What a rush to be so close. Had a little to learn with the exposure due to the intense flames. Got 4 or 5 more launches to get it down packed! ;)

    Very cool. You have to wonder what that bird in the third shot was thinking about at the time. :)

    He was too busy fighting the turbulance to be thinking of much else :lmao:

    Outstanding images. I've always dreamt of seeing a launch from up-close.

    Fantastic!!! I always wanted to drive up there from South Florida to shoot it.

    I heard it was tough to get close though?

    How far were you away and what mm lens did you use? And how much are these cropped?

    Great job, Joe
