    NASA Mobile Launch Tower

    NASA is going to use this Mobile Launch Tower to launch their Heavy Lift rockets. It's 390 feet tall and not expected to be put to use until 2016; the rocket it will help ferry into space will be capable of lifting 154,000 lbs. of payload into low earth orbit...wow...

    Taken from the tour bus with big keystone corrections in GIMP to get it close to normal...

    Good one. I'd want to clone that dark strip cutting across the bottom right hand corner.

    The tower looks as if it's reaching up into the hole in the clouds. Nice capture!

    Glad to see sepia applied to an image that isn't timeless. All of us should do that more often.

    Thanks Donald, it goes without saying that you have a great eye for details and I appreciate the feedback. I've pulled the dark road outline out as suggested...

    Thanks Mike! I must admit I was a little pessimistic about shooting from a moving tour bus on less than ideal terrain, glad this one has a little bit more of that 'intentional' look...
