Space Shuttle Atlantis Liftoff STS-135

3-2-1 liftoff!


Space Shuttle Atlantis taking-off for the final time from Kennedy Space Centre, Florida on July 8th 2011.


I photographed this from the NASA Causeway, from approximately six miles away using a Canon EF 500mmm f4L lens mounted on an EOS 7D body.


The image colours and sharpness have been tweaked a little in Lightroom, but the image is un-cropped.
