Nice shot! I hope they restore it afer it was toppled by Hurricane Matthew. I always enjoyed seeing it as we pulled in to line up for media escort to the launches.

Behind The Lens

Location
Cape Canaveral, FL.
Time
Dawn
Lighting
Right before the sun came up
Equipment
Sony A7ii, 16-35 f/4.0 Manfrotto tripod
Inspiration
While waiting for an early morning rocket launch from the Cape I turned around and noticed these amazing colors starting to form in the sky. I grabbed my gear and went back across the street to where this rocket was on display at the entrance of the space and missle museum.
Editing
3 shots blended together for dynamic range and adjustments in light room.
In my camera bag
Batteries, micro fiber lens cloth, rocket air, flash light, filters
Feedback
Keep your eyes and mind open for composition.. Had a fellow photographer at this launch jokingly point out that the rocket was going up in the opposite direction.. Joke's on him tho.. Launch was scrubbed but I still walked away with this beauty.
