This view from below the John P. Stapp Air & Space Park looks back towards the New Mexico Museum of Space History. On the right in front of the museum is the subject of the next few images of the giant F-1 engine which powered the Saturn V rocket. This image was taken at 18mm focal length. It is not quite as sharp as I'd like since I accidently shot it at ISO 1600 with the lens wide open and I also cropped it a bit from the original. The high ISO gives the image a bit of grain which I sometimes like in pictures, but not really in this one. The image was taken at 1/6400 seconds at f/3.5, with a polarizer.
