Blood Moon 2015





Did you see it?
My camera couldn't capture the total eclipse very well...
it was so dark and hard to pick it up!  But just standing 
outside looking at it, it was awesome!  It looked more
3-D than it's usual self.  So cool.

  3. Hi Betsy ~ It's been awhile, hope you're doing well! Nice pics! The weather was great here in Indiana for it. The total eclipse and Blood Moon were awesome to see and incredible to experience - something I won't soon forget! I'm so glad you had good weather and were able to enjoy it as well!!

  8. I think your photos are pretty great!
    I had to go in to work at 3 this morning, which meant getting up at 2am. Therefore, I was in bed and missed the eclipse... :(

  9. Glad you got to see it. We had clouds here though I heard it cleared up later on. How much of a telephoto lens do you have?

    1. I can zoom in closer with my old camera...it has a 26x zoom. I've already requested a zoom lens for my new camera. haha...hopefully for Christmas. :)

    2. Looks like you're in for it this weekend. We need the rain so badly, but it is putting a kink in some major plans this week. Announcement coming soon.

    3. We're supposed to get thunderstorms today, in fact! Very dark out this morning...almost overslept!
      An announcement? Oooh...you're such a tease!

  14. Hi Betsy - amazing ... I started to watch - but it was high overhead and went over the roof and I didn't get dressed and go outside to watch more ... it lasted an hour and I'd have been frozen .... excuse!! Your shots are incredible - lovely ... so pleased you watched. Yes you're right pictures don't compare to being there and watching - I agree. Cheers Hilary

    1. I was a little chilly outside watching! I'd go in for little breaks until the phase looked different! haha...

  15. I did see it and I have to say that you managed far better photographs than I got. It was a little foggy in these parts : but that is a bit of an excuse. If the truth is told I was half asleep and not sure what I was doing.
