Space Shuttle Endeavour - Menlo Park - 2012

On its final flight, NASA's space shuttle Endeavour overfly's Menlo Park onboard the 747-100 shuttle carrier aircraft N105NA. This was the last flight for both the shuttle orbiter and the 747.

 

This image was shot from one of the hills in Menlo Park's Bedwell Bayfront Park - among several hundred others who gathered for this tribute flight.

 

Shot using a Canon 5D Mark II using a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens with a Canon 1.4x Tele-extender. Shot in Shutter Priority at 1/1000th of a second, ISO 100, f/5.6.

 

Post processed in Adobe Lightroom 4 where it was cropped to at 16:9 ratio and adjusted using a bit of clarity applied just to the aircraft with the adjustment brush with a bit of post-crop vignette.
