I consulted my mobile app "The Photographer's Ephemeris" for the moonrise time & location. This is a really handy tool, by the way. http://photoephemeris.com/
The night before we scouted out possible location shoots. I spent a couple hours researching advice for the best camera settings and prepping the camera. These aren't pro-quality, but not bad for the size lens I had (and my amateur skills).
I wanted a building or something in the foreground for perspective and picture interest.
For my purposes, a good spot was the church a mile from here.
I got one good shot with the steeple in the picture, but the best moon-shots were without the building.
The moon actually looks more red in photographs. To the naked eye, it was lighter than this. These pix are not edited except for cropping.
A friend brought her lawn chair & joined us. It was fun sitting outside, watching this together, almost like sitting under the summer sky watching the holiday fireworks.
After we went home, I went out on the patio & shot the rest of the eclipse action.
And here we are, back to normal.
The next morning, that same bright, full moon was setting in the western sky. I didn't get the tripod out, but took a picture anyway.
So that's it - Blood Moon #4, September 27, 2015. So glad the weather was nice, the sky was clear and I got to see the whole thing this time. And so thankful for a patient hubby, who indulges my escapades of chasing the sunset or moon.
