DescriptionFrom my home in the Rocky Mountain foothills North of Lyons, CO I lookup up to see the Moon sitting on top of a gigantic shelf of cloud, itself a very beautiful Anvil Thunderhead. With no time to waste, I ran to the house and quickly setup the camera and blasted off 20 or so shots before the moon disappeard beneath the white veil of cloud. Here's one shot, cropped by my friend Joe Glynn of Boulder.

EquipmentHand held image of Discovery taken with a Canon 400D and a 200 mm lens.
DescriptionI made a day trip from S.C. to Florida for the final launch of Discovery. I was across the river about 12-14 miles from Pad 39. As expected the launch was a very emotional event, and I divided my time between photographing and enjoying the visual aspects of the event. This photo reminds me of Mike Collins's book title, "Carrying the Fire." I like this photo more than the ones in which the vehicle and boosters are visible. It captures the grandeur of the event. The flame in the contrail says it all. Hail Discovery!
