bloodmoon

Hey guys, I’m totally happy. Last night we have had a moon eclipse and the weather conditions were great for taking some photos. The eclipse started here at about 2:11h in the early Monday morning and lasted until 6:27h. It was a crisp cold night with about 4°C, but a clear sky – perfect.

Several years ago I didn’t have had a proper camera for this job and the last 2 or 3 occurrences the weather conditions were too bad.

Take care!

chasing the moon

610_3078-e_wYesterday evening I was out for chasing the supermoon. A clear sky and a moonrise shortly before sunset proposed a good view. Thus, I went uphill to the south and keep the big city in my back.

I arrived about half an hour before sunset to look for a good spot and used the opportunity to get some sunset images. The opposite side, where the moon rises, was not in that good shape 😦

A thin layer of clouds and dust-covered the moon constantly. The snap in the gallery is the best possible shot 😦 You can recognize a slight light corona around the moon. That’s the reflection and distortion of the moonlight ins this cloudy layer.

But, the sunset images are the compensation. The clouds were a perfect canvas for the setting sun to paint wonderful colors in the sky.

Enjoy!
