Bad Moon Rising.

Well, it was more like “Bad Moon Setting”. This morning, as the moon set, it was going to be a “Super Blue Blood Moon”. This would be a once in my lifetime event. I decided to try and take a photo or two. Braving the cool 26 degree Fahrenheit / -6 Celsius temperatures, I got up early, went outside and took a test shot.(C)2018 KRColvinPhoto

I still had some time before the moon set. My not so awake brain was awakened in the coldness. I had my ISO set at 1600 as it seemed dark and I am not proficient in night time shooting. When I turned 180 degrees around, the sun was rising. Not a spectacular sunrise, but it is not that often I am up and outside this early. (C)2018 KRColvinPhoto

I went back inside to warm up a bit and to wait for moon-set. When the time was almost right, I went back outside and prepared for that perfect shot. I snapped a few more shots while I waited.(C)2018 KRColvinPhoto

This shot would be the last shot of the moon before the clouds covered it completely. While I did not get a photo of the super blue blood moon in all it’s specular glory, I am proud of myself for venturing outside so early in the cold with out having my first cup of COFFEE.

Be safe and have a Great day. . .
