Total Eclipse of the Moon

I must admit when Paul dashed out on to the patio late on Saturday night saying he was going to photograph the lunar eclipse, I said to myself - surely he can't do that. In my defence I thought it was the glass of wine we'd consumed whilst watching Pride and Prejudice (the film not the TV series) on DVD - a mere snip at £4.95 from Tesco - that was fueling the enthusiasm and indeed, when I saw the little round shape through the viewer on the back of the camera I thought it was a case of 'duck on a millpond' but, after messing around with his photo software - much zooming and cropping and things that are beyond my technical capabilities - this is the result:-

Quite good, isn't it?


  1. It's better than I could've done!

    I missed the whole spectacle! (having fallen asleep after too much Chablis!!)

  2. OH MY GOSH, IT'S BEAUTIFUL!! I am going to post a link to it, from my site, ok??!!

  3. sissy, glad you like the photo - go ahead and link, that's ok, thanks :)

    gary, shame you missed it but I guess you had sweet dreams after the Chablis :)
