Well, amazing!

I get my news mostly from the radio, so this is the first images I have seen, and they are spectacular! What a huge beast!

Great set.

Stunning! I missed seeing the launch on TV. These are the best shots I've seen of it yet. Fantastic work.

Elon Musk sent his own personal convertible in that rocket. Apparently he is having a severe midlife crisis. ;-)a

These are great! Would be interested in how you got the shots. I'm assuming remote control of cameras.

I'm about to make a thread of my shots from Playalinda Beach (3.5 miles away) but they are nothing compared to these shots!

I run a small fleet of remote cameras. They're triggered by timed sound triggers I designed and built. You can see various parts of this operation in the setup & results thread in the flash photo forum (which I've been crashing with non-flashed setups for years now).
