The last half of the lunar eclipse

Blood Moon - © Christopher Martin-4533The clouds cleared at the point during this week’s eclipse when the moon was just coming out of the earth’s penumbra.  The top edge of the full moon was just coming into e sunlight.  The majority of the surface was still in shadow and was a deep reddish orange.

 The glow from the moon coloured the landscape as well.

The moon left the shadow much too quickly for me but it was fun to watch the different looks as the clouds moved, the colours changed and the blood moon slipped away.

  5. These are gorgeous, Chris, and extra special, since it was way too cloudy here to see any of it.

    Absolutely phenomenal photos! Your work is always amazing, and here, you’ve captured nature once again so beautifully! I’ve never seen an eclipse like this before, and it was overcast here on the (BC) coast, so thank you very kindly for posting.
