Blood Moon

Blood Moon - Lunar Eclipse

Woke up at 5:40 this morning, stumbled around, got the coffee started, opened the shades on the lanai facing west. The moon looked interesting. Then turned on teevee and the weather lady said it’s a lunar eclipse, the “blood moon” and it’s peaked with a few minutes left. Grabbed a jacket and my camera, went out on the fire escape and got a few grainy handheld shots. My camera was in M, I was in jammies, not yet caffeinated, cold, and barely awake – and it was dark. Under the circs I’m happy we can tell it’s the moon. Graininess and all. Nikon D7100, Tamron 16-300 lens, 1/4 sec, f 6.3, ISO 5000, manual focus.
