Partial Lunar eclipse, 26 June 2010

Well, I had been looking forward to this for weeks.  We had some scudding clouds about during the event, but I am quite pleased with these two images.

1.  Taken from Terranora, north coast NSW. Canon 1DsMKII, 100-400L f4, 2 sec, f8, ISO200 – time 20:51 I like the effect of the racing clouds, the moon looks very surreal. The clouds shut down after this so I don’t have any of the maximum eclipse.

2.  A montage shot of the partial lunar eclipse of 26 June 2010 taken with the Panasonic Lumix FZ35 ( a ‘mere’ point and shoot!). The moon in the cloud shot was burnt out to a white disc, so I layered in a moon from a shot taken about 3 mins later through a break in the clouds. (P1030950)

  1. Evocative, crisp moonshots. Very satisfying to look at .They capture the emotional allure of our largest natural satellite. I like the clouds behind the moon!
