Eating The Moon

I had the pleasure and honor of standing out on a cold and windy evening craning my neck up towards the sky, gazing and squinting through dark clouds, looking for the moon going through phases of the total lunar eclipse.

Serendipity, however, decided to give me something for my trouble in the form of a beautiful cloud burst. However, the moon was over exposed to the point of being a pure white disc. Taking one of the well exposed moons, I merged the two to produce the following:

Neither shot by themselves were very interesting, in and of themselves, as it was early on during the eclipse and with a 200mm lens, I could only get so much of the frame filled. While not "as shot", I ended up really liking this shot.

It reminds me of the mystery and magic of the moon.

You can see more images I took from the Lunar Eclipse in my gallery.
