Space Shuttle Enterprise Heads up the Hudson River

Today the space shuttle Enterprise made its way to the deck of the Intrepid.  I took a quick break to snap a few shots as it went up the Hudson to its new home.  I shot these at various focal lengths up to 624mm with the Fujifilm X-S1 camera.

 What a terrific blue sky for the shuttle journey!

  1. I canNOT believe that there have been no comments on these photos so far!!! Having checked out Google Images for pix of this event (which is where I found your page, so no complaints here) there were many nice, pleasant, even surprisingly varied images of the shuttle, but the pictures here on your page are beautiful and fantastic! Even if you hadn't taken them, but only chosen them, I would still think you had the best taste and a fantastic eye… The one at the top is just plain gorgeous, and I don't know how much, if anything, you did with color, exposure or other effects (I'm not a photographer, just an admirer) but the color in that one is, well… delicious! It's been a pleasure discovering this page.
