Lunar Eclipse

A perfect, if frozen evening ... popped out for a few minutes to shoot the moon ... since it was red at the time, the exposure was long. But my brain must have frozen because I did not raise ISO and I did not shoot wide open to get a faster shutter speed. Basically, I forgot how far the moon moves in such a short time.

Thus ... I froze for half an hour and returned with nothing to show for it. A disaster that reminded me that one must approach each new session with a few thoughts about what the subject will do and how the photographer should counter that. Duh.

So here is the one image I was able to process in order to prove that I was there ... it sucks in every possible way, but it is all I have.
