After all the hype about the Red Moon, or bloodmoon or lunar eclipse of yesterday, the moon had quite a bit of stage-fright and didn’t really want to show itself. And when if finally did, I didn’t get the clear, sharp shots I wanted.
On the other side of the horizon however the sunset was beautiful and that did give some pretty nice shots. And it was really nice in my walk looking for the moon to see lots of cars and bikes parked next to the roads and in the fields with people all looking out for that bright red moon. Sort of a shared experience…
More photos after the break…
By the light of the moon
When the night holds the secrets
Of the sleepy lagoon
I’m contemplating moonlight
On the water
When I’m walking with you
On an evening in June
(Van Morrison / On an evening in June)
It’s been a while since I last shot stars, but I was out and saw the stars in the sky and looked for a bit. It’s amazing how many stars are out there and how much you can see on a clear night, even from your own back yard…
It’s another shot the sky yesterday, but the first one I felt was a bit dark. The lower right corner is a bit too bright, but overal I’m quite happy with this version.
