I Joined the Lemmings!
Okay, I'll admit it! Tonight I was out there with thousands of other photographers photographing the "Super Moon Eclipse". I joined the Lemmings! Though I will say that I didn't go out of my way and track down some exotic backdrop or foreground to go with it. I was pretty lazy and just photographed it from my backyard. I'm kind of glad I did too because the whole first part was hidden in a cloud layer and I missed it. In the afternoon I did a diligent search using "The Photographer's Ephemeris" so I would know exactly where the moon was supposed to rise. I was all set up and waiting and nothing happened. I waited and waited and no moon. I went back and checked the time and the bearing and they were correct. So where did the moon go? When I went back outside I could see a really thin moon trying to shine through a pretty heavy layer of moisture on the horizon. As time passed the moon rose above it and it got a lot better. I stayed and watched the whole eclipse and I must say it was pretty cool. God created a vast and incredible heavens to keep us in awe. May you have a blessed day, chrisAll images created with a Canon 7D and a Tamron 150-600mm lens at 600mm on a Manfrotto 055 XPROB Tripod with a Bogen 3055 heavy duty ballhead.Exposures varied wildly with the changing light.
