2 Minutes of Excitement!

Dave and I went down to the beach to see the Launch of the Shuttle at Cape Canaveral and we were not the only one waiting for that spectacular event.

And then... wow, there was the Shuttle already, high up in the sky
before I even could point and focus my camera to the right spot.
I was almost to late with clicking the shutter :)

O.M.G., that was quiet the most exciting 2 minutes in my life - and I almost missed it...LOL...

And a full view of the whole scenery
btw, all the pics are click able to see it a little bit bigger, so you get the idea what I try to show you here :)

Can you see that big white puffy cloud on the horizon? It looks almost like an atomic blast, but that was THE spot where the Shuttle started

And there were also kids, I guess, they don't cared to much about the Shuttle, about space and flying high up to the stars :)

Hi my friends,

It was an experience, it was a very short and intense experience with this space-stuff!
I admit, I was to slow and I have pointed my camera first in the wrong direction.

I'm a newbie...hey.. what's up...? Coming from the "good old country", how the heck should I have photographic experience with catching Shuttles on a digital media? ...LOL...
Anyway, however....there will be more launches coming up next year
and I will be there again and I'll be better, I promise!...LOL...

P.S. if you want to see the REAL pictures, click here

Thanks for all your comments, love you all! :)

And now, back to Earth:
Buy my NEW CALENDARS 2010 - make someone happy for Christmas!

great photos!
I sometimes think that the old science fĂ­ction movies were not so far away from reality now. And I wonder if people will live on a planet other than the earth or meet other people somewhere in space?
Lots of greetings, Susanne
