This was one of the final flights of the US Space Shuttle. NASA had invited me out to take photos, and this photo is actually a complete shot of desperation with my second camera. My first camera had started to buffer (slow down) after taking about a dozen shots as the jets fired up. I was dead in the water. Luckily, I had a spare camera around my neck with a fixed 50mm. I managed to grab one shot just as it passed through a low cloud-cover.
