Lunar Eclipse

I had loads of plans of the type of shots I wanted to get of last night’s lunar eclipse. I was uncertain about getting up at all, but the forecast of clear skies tempted me out of bed at 3am, boy was it worth it.

This is the shot I had in mind, the bay in Whitegate with the eclipse shining over it. I had forgotten how far away the moon is.. Still happy enough, especially with the flares from the lights of the refinery.

I was annoyed with the light pollution so headed down to Inch beach and got this one of the milky way and the next of the moon exiting eclipse.
