This was taken from the NASA causeway 6-7 miles south of the launchpad...i wanted to get a nice wide-angle movie of the liftoff (NASA takes lots of nice close up vids themselves) and the crowd's reactions, but i wasn't quite sure where in the frame the shuttle would end up going, so the framing is less than perfect. I was more concerned with watching the launch myself than snapping pics, so there's a couple of nasty jumps as i hastily nudged the camera upwards to follow the course of the shuttle. download the full 1080p version below.
