I was excited that the clouds weren't in the forecast for Sunday night's view of the super max moon, also called blood moon. I was a bit late at getting the moon when it was real red. But here are some shots that are my favorites.
I took all of these photos on the street where I live. We have led street lights and I tried to avoid them. I should have found a friend who had land where there wasn't so much light. I found a few places where the light was behind me. This 2nd photo had the light in front of me. Notice the line going across under the moon? Most likely an airplane.
The double image was interesting and not sure how it happened. It seemed once the eclipse was half over, it moved even more quickly. I think that's when this photo was taken (8:41 p.m.) Little did I know it til I took the photo then saw it on the computer! The tree seems to be in focus.
The moon and tree kissing!
I took these photos with my Canon T3 camera and used a 210mm zoom lens (Tamron). No flash. Most of the photos were ISO 3600 or 6400 ISO. A longer lens would probably showed the craters even though I could see the craters through the lens. I can always dream of that lens but doubt it will come to fruition.
I think these photos were good enough though. I was out an hour taking these photos. Night shots aren't the easiest to photograph. I work a bit harder and remember that the back display lighting needs to be off or it severely disrupts my view.
Then I had to see for myself what they looked like in bigger size on my laptop. Good to be in the warmer house. The nights have been chilly. Fall has come and we all have been enjoying the cooler weather. Tomorrow the temps are in mid 80s which could be a record for the day.
Hope you enjoyed the show outside last night and my photos as well.
Thankful for the beauty of God's creation.
