Rocket Launch

Here’s another where I was careful to set up the shot beforehand. Now, NASA doesn’t typically let you move launch pads around so in this case it meant getting myself in the right spot before the launch. From the time we moved into this neighborhood I knew the pond and gazebo would make a nice backdrop (or foreground?) for a rocket launch. I took watching a couple previous launches to determine where around the pond I would have to position myself to get the rocket ascending over it just right.

On this day the weather and the rocket cooperated to set up a very nice shot. In this case a better camera would have made the shot a little sharper but overall this one turned out pretty nice.
