La lune est rouge

I am ready to take some new moon photos, specifically of the lunar eclipse. Score A for effort, F for result. I did not realise it would disappear behind the building so soon, so we only saw the early part of the eclipse. Nor did we realise it would be a 'blood moon', although that doesn't really show in the photo.

  1. We had too much cloud to see even a glimpse. And your photos (despite your F) are better than anything I have ever achieved. Moon shots escape me.

    1. EC, yes, as much of Australia did and not many could see it. I wonder what the new camera can do with moon shots.

  2. It was blood red alright and long lasting, as long as you were in a great position. We were! We had the grandchildren around for dinner, and they spent ages outside, pointing and yelling. Best family night for ages :)

    1. Hels, how terrific that they were so excited. It is a shame we did not see it for long.

  3. Really a blood red moon - must admit I didn't look out the window to see the moon, was a clear night too.....then maybe we wouldn't have seen it down here...

    1. WA, I think it was seen around the world, or maybe not. I can't recall.

  4. ha ha, I saw your headline and my high school French jumped straight back into my mind.
    I didn't know there was an eclipse happening, nor that it was to be a blood moon, but since I don't see the moon until it is way too high for good photos that really doesn't matter.

    1. River, yes, that was my high school French, but I think it is correct. Yes, you do have to be in the right place at the right time.

    1. Jac, I did put a bit of effort into to taking the photos. Hairy green donkey balls? The mind boggles.

  6. I've never been successful with a moon shot so yours are actually pretty good. I applaud your effort young man.

  7. I love your little table there. :) And I love a little French as a surprise. Did you ever watch that show The Returned? I never knew that I knew that much French, when I watched it all my primary school language learnings came back to my mind. :)

    2. Snoskred, imported slate on that table, I will have you know. Ok, from Vietnam. I really wish I could speak French. Forget the usefulness of Aussies speaking Asian languages.

  8. No luck here in the West, too cloudy. It really is a hard shot to get even in perfect conditions.

    1. Grace, perhaps best left to the professionals.
