Sunday’s Lunar Eclipse

17 May

I took a picture of the full moon when it first came up Sunday evening.

full moon on May 15th

Then I forgot about the eclipse.

When I went to let the dog out before bed, I noticed it was already getting well under way.

I really need to take the time to learn the settings on this camera.

I had to photograph it, but I didn’t have time to dig the tripod out, and I’ve been too busy to research settings for such a shoot.   That means I just shot.

Here’s what my cell phone did.

This is really what it looked like when I was standing on the deck and it was fully eclipsed.

The camera did an amazing job! It really made the red color of the blood moon stand out.

I am absolutely in love with the new camera. And it was amazing to watch the eclipse.
