Discovery flies off into the new sunrise marking the beginning of a new life away from her home of 28 years in Florida. So long my old friend! This will be me my last memory of her- flying into the sun one last time! I am not sure if i can ever take another picture of her - caged in a museum.

Like the end of an epic movie...

The aircraft juxtaposed against the setting sun! How appropriate an image to signify the 'End of A Glorious Era!' The fact that there is no horizon contributes to that deep feeling of nostalgia and makes it easily one of my favorites. Thank you, Suresh!
