Waterway to Orbit by James Vernacotola

Waterway to Orbit by James Vernacotola

Photographer James Vernacotola captured this stunning long exposure image in 2010 of Space Shuttle Endeavor launch from the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge in Ponte Vedra, Florida; about 115 miles from the launch pad. This launch was extra special because it was NASA’s last scheduled night launch of the space shuttle program. The brilliance of the moment and location of the photo is without a doubt captivating and unique. It was featured in the June/July 2010 issue of Air & Space/ Smithsonian and as an honorable mention in the 2011 National Geographic Photo Contest.
