Red Moon Rising
I stayed up a bit late last night to see the blood red super wolf moon eclipse (or whatever the heck it’s called) and wouldn’t you know it would turn out to be our coldest night of the Winter so far. In fact I’m still cold.
The eclipse was kind of cool, and the moon eventually started taking on a reddish color, but I only stayed out briefly to get a few quick grab shots.
We do have an owl that often hangs out in one of our nearby trees but I suppose I would have needed night vision equipment to capture him, so that accounts for the lack wildlife photos in this post, moon only!
This is great – I was lazy and went to bed:)
I was feeling lazy too, but sneaked out for a quick pic. Came out a bit dark but I didn’t take any time to monkey around with it.
Thanks for looking!
Awesome photo! Thanks for braving the cold to take this picture for us!
Glad you enjoyed it! Turned into a quick in and out, just trying to get a doc shot of some type. 🙂
Thanks for being out there to get this shot. I was curious about the tides. The image is a good one.
If I was feeling real ambitious and adventurous I would have gone over to the inlet to check out the high tide, but a warm bed called instead. 🙂
Wow! Great job, Phil. It was cloudy here, so a good excuse not to stay up. I knew I’d see some professional photos today and I wasn’t disappointed. 👍👏🏻
I’ve seen photos that were a lot nicer than mine, but I just wanted to grab a quick doc shot. That was still the coldest night we’ve had. We never really did get a winter here this year. I actually wouldn’t mind a bit of cold weather, my favorite jacket has dust on it. 🙂
Thanks Phil. I missed seeing the moon and I am so happy to see your beautiful photo.
Thanks for checking this out, I’m happy now that I at least stepped out for a bit to get a quick grab shot. 🙂
Beautifully captured Phil!
Thanks much Vicky, appreciate it. Came out too dark I think but I didn’t feel like taking any time to monkey around with it. Fun anyway. 🙂
Thank you for checking this out and glad you liked it!
Stunning shot Phil, worth the big freeze to get this one ;o)
We couldnt see it down here unfortunately.
We sure had a clear sky but unfortunately that just added to the cold. Still Fun now that it’s over. 🙂
Thank you for this fabulous picture, Phil! We got the supermoon, with its wonderful light but we didn’t get the red moon. Lucky you! Temperatures here are down to -4 at night now, with a thick frost this morning. The bird feeders are emptying as fast as I can fill them.
Thanks a million Maggie!
We still have yet to get Winter here and I don’t think we have gotten a proper frost once so far.
I know what you mean about the feeders though, the birds practically stand on Alyce’s head as she stands there adding the seeds and nuts. Impatient lot these little birdies! 🙂
Hope you had a great visual treat last night..
Thank you so much for sharing 🙂
Thanks so much for looking and commenting and I’m happy you enjoyed seeing the red moon. 🙂
Very lovely BUT I haven’t been able to get that wretched CCR song out of my head since I saw this!
Sorry about inflicting that CCR on you. 😦
Hope it wasn’t going through your head at 3am as you tried to sleep. 🙂
Thanks for checking it out!
