Shuttle launch with a850 and Bigma
Dec 16, 2010

The shot is cropped and was taken from the KSC Causeway (about 6 miles away from the pad). It was a warm day, so my shots early in the launch weren't as clear due to the rising heat. But, I' pleased with the photo, nonetheless. Thoughts and comments welcome?

I'm currently looking for a 500mm lens, and the Bigma is on my list after renting it for the launch trip.

The photo is of the most recent flight, STS-132.
