So the weather was supposed to be cloud cover and a chance of snow for tonight’s eclipse, but instead there was just a light, thin cloud cover, almost transparent even. I decided to go out to take a look but hadn’t planned on photographing it due to the foggy cloud layer and also due to the fact that I don’t have a zoom lens that’s really capable getting in close enough. Wouldn’t you know that the clouds cleared out just in time for the eclipse to start, and I had to scramble to get my camera ready and set. I got in a few photos, these were the best, though still not terrific.
Just after the last photo, the clouds rolled back in, so that put an end to that. I have had very little luck with eclipses, mostly due to the magnification, but sometimes due to the exposure, it gets a bit tricky as the moon goes through the phases of the eclipse.
The next eclipse is not due for over two years now, just long enough for me to forget all that I’ve learned about shooting eclipses and to screw it up once again. ;-)
