I love space pics and especially ones of shuttle BUT... I hate to bear the bad news that this one isn't real. Mostly because the vehicle is only perpendicular to the ground while on the pad.  It immediately begins to adjust angle to hit an imaginary target in space to reach orbit (or something like that).  Also, good luck getting that close to one at liftoff.  I feel like a killjoy. Maybe I should stay away from pinterest... haha
