New Horizons finally on its way, just 61 seconds after launch and
already astonishingly high and far away. Pure exhilaration. The
picture would have been better if I'd included more of the crowd in
the foreground than just my friend David's applauding hands, but there
was no time to think or compose properly. I hadn't planned to take
photos at all, but I think I'm glad I did.
