It'll be neat because that hotel is where my airline puts us up when we overnight in Newark, coincidentally. I might get a chance to look at it first hand!
I gotta get the camera out. Once hockey stops I go into photo hibernation.

He went up and over but his board didn't make it, see the kook cord if you look real close
I'm still a sucker for a nice sunset. Here is one over Malibu that occurred on Labor Day. We were having some strange tropical weather, and in this one it appears that there were wisps of rain falling out over the ocean, which picked up nicely in the afterglow of the sunset.
I figured somebody would have posted a Space Shuttle shot by now! Everybody in LA was out there taking pictures--albeit mostly with iPhones and Droids. Unfortunately where I was, it was flying kind of high and there was a lot of haze. But with lots of pixels to work with and the processing power of Photoshop, I was able to pull something out.
That night I happened to be driving by LAX and saw a bunch of TV trucks and people standing on an overlook in El Segundo. I stopped and took a shot of Shuttle as they were preparing to remove it from the 747. You can see the cranes and fixture they use to lift it. The original is a 36mp image so you can zoom in and see the people working. This shot was taken from about a mile away with at 400mm on the D800.
