Space Shuttle Discovery lifting off of 39-A at Kennedy Space Center. This was the last night launch of the Shuttle Program. By far, my favorite picture in my collection.

If I remember correctly, a little over 2min. I think like 2.11 or something like that. All I know is that's the longest I've stood still AND held my breath. lol

Fanatastic shot. I was at the second to last night shuttle launch and it was awesome to see! I had nothing but a cheap point and shoot so no chance for any decent pics.

What? You didn't use a tripod?

I used a tripod, I just didn't want to take any chances at bumping it. I also made sure no one stood close to me. And if you've ever been on the coast for one of the launches, you'll know it's very hard to do. I just about cried when I saw how it came out. It's very sad to see it go.
