Very nice. I wish conditions here in Austin had been like that yesterday morning.

We were very lucky! It dipped down to 500 feet across the runway and flew a slow circle overhead. I really liked the shots you posted. The haze looked cool and gave it a surreal effect.

Wow..

The last time that spacecraft will ever fly. Ever. Talk about capturing the defining moment. And you did it beautifully.

Great exposure, detail and a lovely blue sky background. Looks like a wall hanger to me.

It really trips me out to think that has been in space. You know, out there... Not on earth any more. Crazy.

Nice photograph too!

I was zooming out as fast as I could! I appreciate everyone's kind words on the photo. I was so afraid I would blow a once in a lifetime chance. It was amazing to stand there watching history and hearing the crowd cheer as they waved flags and jumped up and down. I lowered the camera as it was moving away and saluted it out of respect for all the brave astronauts who served and especially for those who lost their lives following their dream.
