Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Lunar Eclipse Tonight February 21, 2008

I photographed some of the Lunar Eclipse tonight and I was not as succesful as I thought I would be… It was FREEZING out and it was VERY hard to get the moon in focus because it was moving too darn fast for the slow shutter speeds. It was hard to do anything when the wind chill made it feel like 19 degrees and I couldn’t feel my fingers!

I managed to get a few cool photos but nothing showing all of the phases of the moon as I’ve seen from others (particularly my friend Colin in Australia in August shown on his BLOG HERE).

Here are some photos of the basic photos I took tonight of the eclipse:
