Super blood moon

Last year I managed to take some decent photos of the supermoon. This morning, I tried to take photos of the "super blood moon", where a supermoon and lunar eclipse coincided.

I didn't use a tripod, and the exposure was so slow, most of my photos came out like this.

Some came out like this, looking like a red bubble machine.

When I tried to do something arty, like photo eucalyptus next to the moon, I couldn't focus on either of them.

But. I got up, went outside, and saw it with my own eyes. The poet Gemma Selzer reminded me that I was shaky because I was excited to see something so cool. It's true. That's the important thing - the experience. It's easy to forget that sometimes.

  1. I didn't get up to see it but well done for doing so. I think that seeing it was perhaps more important than taking pictures. Flighty xx
