Mooning around!



I joined thousands of photographers around Australia last night tripods at the ready to record the 2nd total eclipse this year.There was a fair bit of cloud to contend with and even a little bit of rain, but I managed to get a few shots before giving up and retiring indoors. If the Blood Moon Prophecy  is anything to go by the end is nigh.. better get cracking on that 'bucket list' :) I prefer to have faith that mankind will eventually sort themselves out.. I've always been an unrealistic optimist, but what's the alternative oui! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...

  2. I tried to see the eclipse early this morning, but it was too close to the horizon and hence invisible to those of us who live in "the hills". :-)

  7. Beautiful shots, Grace, awesome! The moon woke me tonight, shining bright into the bedroom.
    Hehe, "mooning" - I guess it was The Simpsons who gave me a really totally different idea of this! ;-)

  9. You did well, your shots are quite well coloured, I was up but only saw a vague orangy glow as there was too much high cloud. yes there are dire predictions about this and the other 4 blloodmoon expected during this year, time will tell I guess, but hopefully it ewill not affect us in deep southern hemisphere. I'm counting on that anyway!

  10. Great shots Grace! I missed it this time around which is just as well. My efforts to photograph the last one were not that great.

  11. When the moon first started to rise I thought I might finally get some good photos. By 8 pm, we were totally socked in with fog and I couldn't see it at all. Oh well...
    I'm glad you got to see it.

  14. Nice photos, your moon seems to point at a different angle than ours, must be that you are south.

  15. Fabulous shots! My glass is normally half full; unless it's someone else's round, of course.

  16. You must have a very strong camera! Beautiful shots!

  17. All clear up here, but my little camera didn't take anywhere near as good a shot as these.

  18. Great photos Grace. Clouds cleared here and when I looked at the moon as I was leaving for work it looked quite like your first photo. From Florida the white sliver was on the right edge just opposite of your photo.

  19. Nice work. We saw it here, but it was cloudy too and the moon was not very red. My favourite shot was taken in Japan at an amusement park with the chair of a Ferris wheel in front of the moon.

  20. Great captures Grace, by the time I got home last night and got my camera out all I could see was the moon behind the clouds, so I gave up!

  27. Beautiful captures, Grace!
    I like also the collage.

  28. Very good. Lovely shots.
    It shone brightly here, but not red, usually behind clouds and rain, bah!
