Winter Time

It has become cold now. The leaves are gone and the snow has turned the pine trees into winter cacti; their bristles frozen and glistening white, like tiny swords ready for a fight. The true battle is not the snow, but the bitter cold. We have a long winter ahead of us and the storms have yet to blow through the mountain pass. Here are some photos to document the winter months.

Lunar Eclipse

Rule # 1 – Bring your equipment….

Rule #2 – Make sure you have all PARTS of the equipment…. ** cough cough.** Tripod attachment.

I did manage a few nice shots regardless of the lack of tripod but would have been an amazing night with proper stability.

In all the photos were better than the actual eclipse from my location. A bit of cloud cover seemed to blur out the moon for most of the night until after the eclipse was over. In the past I have found eclipses better in the early hours of the morning and not at sunset. In all, it made for a great night to have a picnic and enjoy good company.
