Product details

Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year is the largest international competition of its kind. Organised by the Royal Observatory Greenwich and sponsored by Insight Investment, the competition receives entries from photographers all around the world. It annually showcases the best space photography from a global community of astrophotographers.

The exhaust plume from the Falcon 9 rocket took on the shape of a flower during this stage of the launch. This photograph was taken with my 50 mm lens which provided a much closer and detailed view. I was fortunate to have my camera positioned in the correct spot to capture this. This shot consists of two exposures blended; one for the foreground and one for the sky, with no movement of the camera in between exposures.
