Blood Moon.

After having a discussion with myself and deciding that I wouldn’t be photographing the moon tonight as I was feeling pretty tired, I find myself making a bathroom trip in the middle of the night, I lay back in bed and let out a deep sigh, knowing as I do that insomnia combined with curiosity has now lit up my brain, I have no alternative but to check the time. 2.45 a.m.  Letting out an almost inaudible damn combined with a small yay means that I will have to get this pile of old creaking bones out of bed because I will never sleep knowing the moon is just about to eclipse but feeling at the same time joyful that I will see it.

The night is clear, I haven’t set up my tripod and have no enthusiasm to do so, but I take some snaps and watch the heavens in all their glory – it was worth it to see such a beautiful awe inspiring sight. Moon. 2-2 Moon. 1

    Oh aren’t they great shots! I had my camera on the tripod so I’ll have to see what I got later – it was just so beautiful though, definitely worth waking up for! ps your goddaughter loved her birthday presents, she’s currently writing you a letter but she’s writing every word and it’s taking a little time 🙂 xx

    Yes it was lovely and I’m very glad to have seen it in real life, especially as it was such a lovely clear night, and I was going to say warm, but that may have been the alpaca cardigan I grabbed before going out the door. I’m glad she liked them, I’ll look forward to receiving her first letter, we may set up a correspondence!

    I knew if I got my camera out, I would wake up so much, I would not be able to go back to sleep. The moon was lovely, and here with the street lights out, there was a clear view of stars too! Great Pictures Mandy.
