As mentioned in my previous blog posting when I rushed out to see the eclipse my tripod did not follow me. An unsteady camera with big lens pointed skyward and low aperture can create a serious of unusual effects. These are my favorite unexpected images.
I am a child of the moon and have been lucky to witness many of her magical events. On this night however a serious of unfortunate events lead me to a mad scramble whose result was forgetting my tripod. I was thankful to get anything which resembled the moon. Tomorrow I will share the avanguard versions of my moon photography.
Most of my days in the Forest are spent looking around the trail on which I hike or up to the Trees above me. The past few days a glittering haze has filled the park giving the illusion of a light glittery fog. The sun has bathed the sky in a rosy golden glow that even the darkest clouds could not block. The moon has appeared to have rings of color color radiating from its glowing orb. Streaks of light fell like streamers against the dark blue of the night sky. I am glad I looked up from the path to see the beauty in the sky.
