Blue Monday & Skywatch Friday

Rocket!

A rocket we fired off on July 4th into a beautiful blue sky. I set the exposure for about 10 seconds so I was able to capture the rockets path also.

Nice shot. I like that you got the path of the fireworks.

Well done - I suppose you used a tripod and high aperture value too?

Leora said...

Very cool! Looks like something one would do with Photoshop, not for real - but I believe you did this, really. Magical is a good adjective for the shot.
