Blood Moon Rising

Every once in a while, you end up being at the right place, at the right time, at the right moment. It’s not everyday you get to see a full lunar eclipse. That being said and armed with my camera and a limited amount of photographic knowledge. Here we have the moon and some very interesting captions.

The Minature Sun
Nowhere else do you get moon this bright until it actually hurts to look into it.

Close Up
If you squint hard enough, you can see people waving back at you.

The Initial Nibble
Ahhh!! Who took a piece of me!!

Big Bite
Moon monster chomping off the moon. Not really it’s just the earth coming into view, but you would wish there was a moon monster wouldn’t you?

Fresh Blood
Someone’s starting to see red.

Blood Moon Rising
Blood moon rising.

Full Blood
You can almost feel like you’re here looking at it. Almost. Like a blind man can almost see.

So I don’t have a tripod and good focus. Still…not bad for a camera that was meant to just point and shoot. Of course though, you had to be here to see it. It’s one of those things you have to see once in your life and then forget about it later on when something better comes along. Either way, I’m going to eat. Skipping dinner just to keep taking pod shots of the moon isn’t a very bright idea, at least not after you remember that the moon is made of blue cheese.

Or was it lasagne?

  1. I missed it because i was doing my last shift before i move back home. The photos are wicked though.

  2. Tracey: Well, that’s what they are there for. For those that missed it. 🙂

    Miccobayb: How long did it take me with the photos? I think I was out there for half an hour with the previous half an hour before that taking shots before and towards the middle of the eclipse. I’m in NSW anyway. Right smack in the between two big cities. 🙂

    Kris: Awww…well…you can always stare at my photos. The last longer too. 🙂

    Helen: Yeah it was. Thanks for the kudos. 🙂

  3. Lovely! And well done without a tripod. Wasn’t it magical just watching it fade away then turn different shades of red?

    I took around 140+ shots while sipping wine and eating pasta in between. I used a tripod and the results were out of this world (pardon the pun) Not posting any pics though in case they get stolen :(.

  4. It’s amazing what a fence, some pieces of cardboard, a couple of coins and blue tack can do in place of a tripod. I certainly wouldn’t mind taking a look at some of those pictures seeeing that they were beautiful. As skilled a photographer as you are Chicky, they would be worth the sight.
