I have just seen this photograph on Facebook courtesy of NASA. I went in search of a full-size file and found it here.

Click the image to get the full-size version.

It may well be an old image but I have not seen it before, and it is spectacular in the extreme.

If Mr. Terry Corbin happens to be around these parts 'Well done, Sir!' you certainly have immense skill with that camera.

The image, of Endeavour on the pad after rollout recently, is certainly a composite image.

Looks like he got two photos and put them together. One of the sky with a long exposure and the other one of the Endeavour on the pad. He then put the first one behind the second one. Still very cool.

That's too weird. Looks like a small model in front of a photographer's studio backdrop!

Now that I look again, and it's been pointed out, it does look like a composite. Rob, I wish you hadn't made the 'model' reference because that's all I can see now!

Still he is pretty handy with Photoshop.

I shall retreat to my side of the pond until next time.
