Lunar Eclipse by 4everN3rdy Lunar Eclipse by 4everN3rdy
The lunar eclipse in December of 2010 is probably the only one that will occur within my lifetime that also coincides with a solstice. Luckily this one offered a great opportunity to get some pictures.

This is already in my favorites but I just HAVE TO COMMENT!!!

The moon is gorgeous in the picture and I adore the placement, the wide sky, the contrast. All of it. I love it all.

Well thanks. I was determined to get a good picture of the eclipse. It was just too cool...

It really is. I wish it happened more often, but then again, the cool thing about it is that it is rare :)

True that...

Next time (or maybe not the very next time, but one of the times) that this happens, I'm going to be ready for it with better equipment so that I can zoom way in and get closer shots of the moon. This turned out well, but there is only so much I can do with my current zoom abilities with things like this.

eclipses really do give you the time to prepare too! You've got time to do all that :)

Lots of time. Hopefully in that time I will make lots and lots of money so that I can buy/rent better equipment for the day the eclipse returns again!

the brilliance of this, for me, is the positioning...i've never seen the moon put in the corner, so to speak,...:).. like this....if it was in the centre like most moon pictures..:), it'd be less in motion somehow...and the majesty of the redness is eclipsed (no pun intended!) by the massive black space.....you've really captured the awesomeness of planetary life!..:)

Thanks for the comment. Sorry it took me so long to respond. Life took over and I haven't had much time.

I didn't put it in the corner intentionally. I had the camera on a tripod doing remote shooting (because it was cold and I was inside controlling the remote) and over the course of a few minutes, the moon drifted from the center into the corner. I really liked the placement so I kept it.

Ya, it's ultimate cool....I've thought of your photo often, especially since the "super" moon, and "common" full moons I've witnessed here. I like the idea of how the majesty of the moon is highlighted yet gives "space" its real space, its kingdom, at the same time...:)

That's really too bad. I'm lucky I was in a good spot and I got to see the whole thing. It was the first time I've ever watched one and I really enjoyed it. Hopefully the next one is better for you!

I don't really have anything I need to do now that I'm done with school until spring semester starts, so I went over to a friends and we basically watched and photographed the entire thing. It was really cool, but it took me a while to figure out which settings to use to get a good picture, and it was REALLY cold. I felt like my fingers were going to freeze off.

Lucky, I have normal classes from January to June now. Haha the cold is another reason why I always seem to miss lunar/solar eclipses, meteor showers, etc, Im just too chicken to go out in the cold weather in the middle of the night when I could be in my warm bed sleeping!

My classes start up again in 3 weeks. That gives me quite a bit more time to rest up and take pictures. I'm used to the cold and I really like night photography so I was excited for this and made sure I didn't miss it. Eventually I just set my camera on a tripod and timer and went inside while it took pictures.

Thanks! I just wish I had the equipment to zoom in a bit closer on the moon. In any case, I made do with what I had on hand available. It turned out pretty good I think.
