Someone posted a good one on Wunderground that was shot last night in FL. A sandwich, but the best moon so far.

Great pictures everyone. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see it. It was quite cloudy here in Omaha.

I suspect that palm trees and tropical temperatures didn't hurt the experience either :wink:


Someone took a pictire of her watching the sunset and then the eclipse. Looks rough.

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat."

I'm so jealous. Everything west of the CD is rain/snow soaked and covered in clouds. Never go to Grand Junction if you want to see an eclipse. We have had cloudy conditions for the last 3 to 4 eclipses. Ridiculous.

Sorry but you'll get no sympathy from me. We've had a whole 2 inches of snow so far this year. I'll take a white Christmas over a red moon.

Okay, I've got to throw mine in, too. Took it with a 600mm lens, ISO 640, .6 sec exposure on a tripod.

No sympathy?! We haven't had more than a 1/4" of snow so far this fall and cloud cover everyday since Thanksgiving (doesn't count the very top of the Grand Mesa), so we won't have either a red moon or a white Christmas.

So nobody liked my picture??? It has a nice blurry effect with special haze filtering.

When I first saw it this a.m., I thought I needed to dust my computer screen.
Not only did I get to see the eclipse thanks to you photographers out there, but I now have a clean computer screen, too! :mrgreen:
53 peaks, the pic has a nice Impressionist era feel!

Thanks guys! I was going for that "artsy" style. Can you believe one of my sisters is a professional photographer and the other is a graphic artist who designs book covers for Baker Books? Seems like they would have taught me something over the years.

These pictures are great! Thanks! I missed it because of clouds. And snow. LOTS of very deep snow. ( :wink: )
