This is a nice shot with great perspective of the blast off. You will be happy to know that the grass was finally cut -so no more ladders needed.

Very nicely done, Al. We have very similar snowgoose (I assume) scenes on the Skagit Flats in Washington. It is difficult to capture the overall feeling, as you have done here. I like the ladder approach :)

... the ladder episode was sort of funny You should have seen the look I was getting from Rangers and volunteers:D :cool:

If that grass goes up again will be going for a twelve foot ladder:eek: :)

Nice idea Alfred. I like the curvature of the grass as a leading line. I would have like to see the whole vehicle.
