Nice pics. Was the camera set to auto.? Did you use the zoom? Did you set it on 2 pics/sec.?"My policies are based not on some economics theory, but on things I and millions like me were brought up with: an honest day's work for an honest day's pay; live within your means; put by a nest egg for a rainy day; pay your bills on time; support the police."

Those are beautiful! I have always wanted to see a shuttle launch, just haven't been able to make it to one yet.
Thanks for sharing.

Sounded like continuously ripping paper, didn't it? It's definitely a different sound than what I expected.
My colleagues stay at the Holiday Inn in Titusville when they go cover the launches (we have an account at the Hilton in Cocoa Beach.) There's actually a pretty decent Mexican place right near where you took these pix.

I really enjoyed those pictures seeing as how I am wearing diapers at this very minute!

Oh, TeleHoar, you astronaut, you!
I like 'em. Interesting colors on the water. I like the blurring of the reeds in the foreground--makes the shuttle a little more distinct. #s 4 and 6 are my favorite with the long winding trail of smoke.
Wonder how the pictures would have been different if you had used a slower shutter speed--would have smoothed out the water a little bit and showed some motion with the shuttle, but I don't know if that would have been good or bad. Either way, some quality work there."I said flotation is groovy"
