    Default Red Moon this evening

    I like to take pics of the moon and I'm always trying to get something a little different. I've found that when the moon first comes up, it has the best color. Sometimes within minutes, it fades, and in less then an hour, its plain white. Tonight, it was bright red when it first came up!!!!

    I like to get branches and leaves in front of the moon in some of my pics, but best of all, I like to get pics of it with the clouds passing in front of it. Tonight, the clouds where both interesting, and unique.

    This might have been my best night ever of moon pictures!!!!

    Very Nice, this was the last total lunar eclipse until 2014.

    There was a total lunar eclipse but was a bit of a fizzer here as there was too much cloud cover. Here's what one local paper said:

    Nice photographs. We have never owned a quality camera. We always use the single use type cameras. We take pictures, turn the camera in for processing, and pick out our photos that turned out okay and pay for those. I am not sure, but in order to post pictures;etc on TBN, I assume that one needs to use one of those new digital cameras. This is why I have never included any pictures with my posts. I do enjoy seeing the pictures that other TBN members post. Thanks for posting.

    Very nice, Eddie. But wasn't it kind of cool sitting outside to take those pictures?

    I never thought I'd say it, but thanks for Mooning us, Eddie. Those are some very nice shots. The one looks like the moon is actually penetrating the clouds; a very nice effect.

    Thanks. I took 127 pics and deleted 121 of them. I kept these six. A few where blury, but most where very similar to each other, but one was just a hair better then the other. I was out there for awhile. I had been deer/hog hunting and walking back a different rout then normal. Oscar and I had kind of gone the long way to check on the feeder at last light, and then went by this spot where I saw the moon just starting to come up. It was happening so fast that by the time I turned on my camera and got it focused, the moon was three quarters up. The first pic on here is the very first one that I took!!! Then we just stayed there until the color faded and it got behind some hazy clouds. My fingers where numb, but overall, I was dressed pretty good.

    I take and post pics of the moon all the time on facebook. I'm always trying new settings and different places to see what comes out nice in front of it. A branch, or some leaves, or some pine needles. Sometimes it works, but most of the time, it doesn't. But that's what makes it fun. The challenge of trying to do it better.

    Here are some of my moon pics.

    Nice pictures Eddie! Thanks for posting them. I don't ever get photos to turn out that well. You kept 6 out of 127, I'd be fortunate to have 1 decent one out of a thousand with the type pictures you took.
