Amazing, Donald! No idea how you did it, but it's great! #1848428

Donald K. Cherry level-classic September 17, 2005

Thanks everyone for all the fabulous comments...I really appreciate each and every one of them!

For those of you wondering how I did it, I took about 75 shots using different shutter speeds varying from 1/8 to 1/30 sec, while zooming my Nikor 70-300mm lens (starting at the 70mm position) and using many different camera movements as I fired the shutter. I got several other pretty cool images, but this one was by far the best!

Thanks again! #1849613
