Here's my contribution for #TransportTuesday curated by +Gene Bowker . This is the launch of the Space Shuttle mission STS-128. We travelled to the space center about 10 times to see a launch and were only able to witness one launch as the rest were scrubbed for one reason or another. This launch happened right around midnight and was very dificult to shoot. I was using a 400mm lens+2x teleconverter+1.4x teleconverter+1.6x crop factor on manual focus because of the high aperture. It was also a very windy night and we were watching from the causeway which is about 7 miles away from the launchpad. I'm so glad I was able to experience one, what a great experience...
