I'm spellbound! spectacular photo

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 15, 2011:
That's really amazing

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 15, 2011:
I think one of the hardest things about making this photo was trying to figure if the rocket would stay in the frame til the shutter closed. But as usual, Ben pulls it off! Simply awesome!

A visitor from Germany posted Sun July 10, 2011:
Simply perfect.

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri June 24, 2011:
Congratulations for your superb work. There is not a second chance to make this kind of photo!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat April 30, 2011:
Ben I have to hand it to you, these are some of the best pictures on airliners.net. Absolutely mind boggling!

A visitor from - posted Sun February 27, 2011:
25 minutes, thanks

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 11, 2011:
Judging from the length of the star trails, I'd guess Ben had his shutter open for about 10 minutes before the launch, maybe a little longer; this is a shot that can only be taken by a guy who knows precisely what he's doing! (and believe me......Ben knows what he's doing! )

A visitor from Ireland posted Wed June 16, 2010:
Amazing what you can do with technology nowadays!

A visitor from - posted Mon May 3, 2010:
That is one good photo!!!! Well done!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 24, 2009:
What a great shot! You can see the stars colors despite the amount of light pollution in the photo. I also like the angles of the lights coming away from the pad.

A visitor from Australia posted Mon November 30, 2009:
I would rather call you an artist than photographer.

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 6, 2009:
This photo brought the movie Armageddon launch theme into my mind! Aw, what a flawless photograph!

This is an amazing view of the Atlas as it soars into space! I like the way that you used the lake as a reflecting pool.
