My 5th or 6th try for a rocket and still shotless I had been waiting for about an hour, still no rocket.
Then my wife calls: "T-3:30 and counting".
SWEET!

Each shot 35-70mm @ 45mm, 30", f11 and iso 100
Lift off!

Great shots. Reminds me of watching launches from Winter Park in the late 50's.

I know the area. I went to University of Tampa on the army bootstrap program in 1978.
