Leaving Earth

Steve Wetrich sent in this fantastic program which shows the Juno rocket taking off from Cape Canaveral. Pretty impressive given the limitations imposed on him by the gear and the fickle nature of shooting incredibly fast moving objects against a blue sky.

“My favorite photo I took of the Juno rocket taking off from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. I used my dad’s old 500mm Olympus lens on my Canon t2i for it. It was all manual focus and focusing a 500mm with a 1.4 crop and a moving target was pretty difficult. I had it on a monopod for the first few shots but at this point I was fully handheld. It was fun. ”
