Space Shuttle Discovery!

A little advanced planning might have made this significantly better… like, say, bringing a longer lens than a 50!  Or getting to the viewing spot just a few seconds earlier and getting the thing not backlit!!  But in either case, it was awesome to see.  We live in such a neat place.  I was lucky enough to see Discovery launch for the last time and I was glad to see her come on home to Virginia.

I had the same problem! For some reason, I thought the shuttle would be a lot closer and thought I’d be fine with 105mm. Wrong! Now I’m jealous of all the people who set up tripods and had really long lenses…and the people who were standing closer to either the Capitol or the monument instead of the middle of the Mall where I was. Oh well, I didn’t get the perfect shot, but it was still a really cool thing to witness!

So awesome that you were able to go (and got a shot of it)!

I heard it was absolutely amazing to see, since the plane flew so low. Chad and I really, really wanted to venture down to DC, but weren’t able to – due to his work schedule. Very sad.

Wow! So lucky. I love the spaceships since I was a kid!
