Sunday’s Lunar Eclipse

17 May

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

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.

I did two photo shoots last weekend.  The first was on Friday afternoon, and I was afraid it wasn’t going to happen.  The weather was supposed to be clear, and we had planned a lovely outdoor fall shoot.  Well, it rained.  I am impressed that I could actually get a makeshift studio set up in my soap room in about thirty minutes.

I’m more impressed at how the pictures turned out.  It was part family pictures

and part maternity shoot.

When we finished, the rain had quit, so we did go do a few more at my mom’s house.

The next morning, we did the six-month shoot for my great-nephew.


His older brother, the Little Farm Hand, joined him for some of the pictures.

I am liking the soap room studio!

Time for Leftovers!

8 Oct

This week was my parent-teacher conferences at work, so I am quite excited for the weekend!  I’ve missed not being home in the evenings.  And it means I haven’t done much to blog about, so here’s just some random thoughts with leftover pictures.

Bob is still struggling with getting back to his usual cranky self. He needs to come in the house and hibernate for the winter.

I really am trying to decide who to breed and who to retire and who to give a year off.  I’m pretty sure Gidget is getting a year off or retiring.  I hope the copper I gave last weekend kicks in and helps Reva and Gidget look better.  They really need it.

These two are happy to be together again.  Other than when Astra goes to get bred, they shouldn’t have to be separated again.

I am excited because I’m soon going to be doing a couple of photo shoots.  I will get to photograph a little girl!  Wish I could get my camera replaced before then, but I guess as long as my old faithful just keeps working, I’ll call it good.

Finally, just some more of the goats out in pasture.

Zinnia is still giving me a decent amount of milk.

Happy weekend!
