Anyway enough of the science, let's get on to the pictures!
First, I'll show some scenic shots with and without the moon, then I'll show you a sequence of shots that goes from the full eclipse back to the normal Moon.
|View from my first vantage point|
|Waited a long time due to a cloud bank on the horizon blocking my view, so took some shots while I was waiting. Here's a closeup of the bridge over the river at night.|
|Finally the Moon appeared!|
|Moon with Tree|
|Later I moved to a walking bridge to try for some shots there|
|Now on to the eclipse sequence. This is when I first finally saw the Moon. It was fully eclipsed.|
|Sun shine starting to creep back at the bottom|
|Really noticeable now|
|Starting to get really bright and hard to get both parts in the picture|
|Took a darker picture but still the light part is completely blown out|
|Switched to exposing for the lighter side of the moon - now the other side is completely dark|
|About 75% through the second half of the eclipse|
|Back to normal|
