Night Launch of STS123, Shuttle Endeavor. Very humid evening as evidenced by the atmospheric lighting, low cloud deck obscured the launch after approx 10 secs. Shot with Nikon D50, 70-300mm ISO400 1/125, f/8.Taken, Kennedy Space Center Causeway.

WOW- incredible- it must have been a thrill

Thanks Michael. You’ve got a great portfolio!
VIP area or causeway? I almost did the causeway this time, but backed down in fear of losing my $115 on a scrub. That happened to me in December. In any event -that was my first night launch and it’s at the top of my “most incredible things witnessed” category (and I’ve seen a couple of hundred tornadoes in my short lifetime!). Outstanding work Mark! Every shot I see just brings it all back again.
Thanks alot Brian, my day shots were taken at Banana Creek VIP viewing site but the night shots were on the causeway. The no refund policy has always bugged me and it sucks that you had to go thru that. Glad you enjoyed the shots
Very Cool…would love to feel what it feels like to be that close to a launch!
An incredible shot. When I was 15 or so, I got to see a launch from Daytona Beach. it was the coolest thing I have ever seen and an experience for sure!
Thanks Amanda! I am lucky to get a ring side seat for many of the launches.
this is a wonderful shot!!! love it…i loved to watch these when i lived in cocoa beach
Thanks Catherine! i am happy to be able to share them ;)
