La luna

Last night we had a total eclipse of the moon. We could see it clearly from the back of our house and I tried to get some photos. The night setting on my camera has a very slow exposure time and it showed all the trembling of my hands, so there was a red spot dancing all over the sky! So I went back to the auto setting and these were the best I could get. The one on the left shows it when the eclipse was almost complete, and the second one shows the moon emerging back out from the other side.

While I was watching I was attacked by swarms of little bugs coming up from the green zone. needless to say, Chris didn't get bitten at all. The price we have to pay ...

  1. Nice pictures. I didn't know anything about the eclipse until I heard it on the radio when we went to bed and I think it was all over by then anyway.Jean x
