Blood Moon

I thought it was rather cool that the Blood Moon occurred on our 12th wedding anniversary ;)

There are so many cool photos of last night's lunar event out there that were taken by people that know a lot more about photography than I do and have bigger and badder toys to play with but this was the view from my front yard.

At this point, there wasn't enough light left for the setting I was using so I switched settings and went from this

to this.  There was a wee window between 2 trees that I was shooting thru and the moon finally rose high enough to where I couldn't get just the moon.

Not sure what was going on here - a reflection of some sort. Sort of cool though - a ghost moon perhaps :)

As much as I wanted to stay up and get the whole thing, I did have to get up in the morning and I succumbed to sleep. I got to watch most of it though!
I do have pictures of the minions and outings and fiber-y stuff to post but I've been busy prepping for a vendor gig next weekend and I haven't had much computer time. Until next time...
