Today is an important day. It’s the Winter solstice, the first day of winter……that’s a cheering thought. From now on though it’s all downhill the days get longer. I thought I’d nip out yesterday evening and first thing this morning to indulge my Druid and Wicca leanings…..which one I lean toward I couldn’t really say. Perhaps I should take my convictions a little more seriously.
Another shot of the moon………….this is known as a link. This morning saw a lunar eclipse and I shot most of it. Almost half of it anyway. I got up a bit late and then the moon went behind the trees……still better to see some of it than none of it……..All the following are cropped as I still don’t have my long lens back from the menders. I’ve not messed with them……………Promise. They should enlarge.
The last one is almost there. Had I been able to observe it for longer it would have reflected a deep red light. I can feel a Photoshop moment coming on.
The quality is not of the best but I tried my best. Freezing it was. I hope all you loonies out there appreciate my sacrifice. I have loads more so will see if I can polish a few up. They are not shot to a time interval unless you consider A Marlboro a frame scientific interval timing……..more like suicide. Also a couple have longer gaps as I made a cup of coffee during one and lost the dogs for a while during another. Bet Patrick Moore doesn’t operate under such constraints.
Have good day.
