The Full Hunter's Blood Moon

 

I took these from Jackson, GA (USA), where we were staying this week with friends (all hand-held).

We got up on Wednesday just after 6 a.m. to see the lunar eclipse (bottom-right),

when I wished I had had a tripod!

 

Now we're up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia with my kids.

Happy weekend to everyone.

Well done for making the effort Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: It seemed a sin to not try for the lunar eclipse, Chris. smile. So glad we weren't disappointed.
Wonderful sequence Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Richard.
There has been a rash of people in Droitwich taking pictures of the moon and posting them on facebook. None are a patch on these!
Ginnie Hart: You know how to make my day, Bill. Thank you.

I like the fact that your friends were all hand-held; just as it should be smile A lovely presentation. Theone bottom right remind me of an eyeball.

tremendously good photographs Ginnie. I missed this event but it seems as if you made up for that
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Chad. We feel very lucky that the skies were clear.
Very nice for handheld. I see a witch in the one top right.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. Someone on Facebook also saw a witch, so you're in good company. smile
Beautiful sequence shoot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.
I bet you were thrilled to get to see and capture this event, Ginnie. The results are magnificent and so well presented in this collage. Unfortunately we had clouds. Enjoy your time in the Blue Ridge Mountains; must be beautiful there.
Ginnie Hart: I was indeed a very happy camper, Beverly. Thank you. And right now we're totally enjoying the mountains, though it's a bit earlier and hotter than our normal time.

One can moon over this posting for some time. Happy hunting for more great quality pictures.
Ginnie Hart: Good play on words, Louis. smile. Thanks!
Excellent quartet of pictures. When you said Blue Ridge Mountains it made me think of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgRJVlPJKQs
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. It's so funny because we just visited the Laurel and Hardy Museum in Harlem, GA, this week. WOW.

These are just incredible pictures. It was an amazing sight. The moon is intriguing, every time it shows a different face.
Ginnie Hart: We were so lucky to have clear skies both in the evening and the morning. Thanks for sharing it with me!
Fine shots, Ginnie - excellent for hand-held!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Tom.

good evening
Nice set that you show us for this eclipse !! thank you
Ginnie Hart: Thank YOU, Pat.
Superb shots, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael.
They are fabulous smile They put my moon photo attempts to shame ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Having my new Powershot camera has made all the difference in the world, Cherry. I never could take good pics of the moon with my DSLR. Interesting, right?

i haven't used a tripod in so long, but i understand the wish for one, there's more blood moons next year smile
Ginnie Hart: Both Astrid and I have a tripod back in the Netherlands, Elaine, but I hardly ever use it. It's good for such things as the eclipse, but it is as it is. I was glad I was able to get what I did. smile

It's wonderful to see these, Ginnie. I was also photographing the moon that night (not as successfully and we couldn't see the eclipse here). In fact I did a whole Full Moon Ceremony on my house (as is my wont). It involved a singing bowl and lots of crystals. Then I went outside and admired the moon and tried to photograph it, and as I went back in I spotted my neighbour at her back door. I'm not sure she was moon spotting. I think she was looking at me with amazement and thinking I'd gone mad! I love the way when it's eclipsed the moon goes pink and for once you can see its roundness.
Ginnie Hart: I would have loved being your neighbor, Penny, watching your every move! smile
