    Excellent shot! Were you at the Saturn V viewing site?

    Yes, I was at the Banana Creek / Saturn V center.

    My uncle (Rick Sturckow) is the commander on STS-117, so that's why i was in the family / VIP area.

    edit: let me go upload the full size version of this, the flickr uploadr cut it down on accident.

    Amazing vantage point! Great shot! Since Saturn V sounds a little restricted to get into? lol....can you recommend any other great views similar to this to photograph the launch?? Thanks!!
