STS-117 Shuttle Rollout Pics
Feb 18, 2007

Hi everyone. I managed to get a few pictures of Atlantis rolling out this last week from the VAB to Pad A. The sun was kind of harsh so I didn't take as many pictures as I usually do. I've got them posted in my 117 Gallery.

Here are the two pictures I like best. Hope you enjoy.

Great Blue Heron taking flight with Atlantis rolling out in background.
30D - 100-400 ~ 1/400s f/7.1 at 160.0mm iso200 - hand held

Atlantis at Pad A the same evening moments before total darkness. I went specifically for this blue moment. Note: No saturation was added in photoshop or from camera. Just a small amount of sharpening after size reduction.
20D - 24-105/f4 ~ 2s f/11.0 at 47.0mm iso200 - tripod with remote
