Blood Moon eclipse

11 months 3 weeks ago #594632 by earthian
Was looking forward to photograph the eclipse today. Blood Moon too.
And what do you know. Completely overcast sky and no chance of any moon sightings. Some friends in the right places advised driving about a 120 kms where the possibility of clear skies was higher.
Took a chance and did precisely that and am glad that i did.
Just came back and it is 4 in the morning here in Ahmedabad, India!

I really like the first one, with the clouds.

Color and light are quite nice on 2 & 3.
