Blood Moon

I forgot all about the eclipse of the moon when I took Jacque out for an evening walk. As we walked through a local woodland and came to a gap in the canopy this is what we saw. Luckily I always carry my camera and this was the result. I decided not to sit up for half the night for pictures of the actual eclipse so I settled for the 'blood moon'.


  1. Good morning Mike!:) Wow! You did well to capture the moon at this stage, it's a terrific shot.

    1. Thankyou Sonjia, It was quite an experience. I've photographed the eclipse before in black and white but this was far more interesting.
      Regards Mike.

  2. Wow!! Just gorgeous..
    Thx for comment.. Cheers

About Me

My photo
Evacuated during the second world war to a village in Yorkshire where I lived in the home of a good photographer for more than five years who taught me the basics and a great deal about nature. Well past retirement age I have been a wildlife photographer for more than 30 years. Red Kites have been my speciality for much of this period. I did spend several years snapping wheelchair athletes and organizing the British Road Race Championship. In the year 2000 I was awarded a distinction by the Royal Photographic Society for my portfolio on wheelchair athletes. Most of my pics are digital, using Sony cameras and Sigma lenses. I used to spend many weeks each year with friends in Wales which is close to the Elan Valleys where I got many of my raptor pics. I now get these pictures more closely to home, specially red kites and peregrines. I support my pension by selling my pics, cards, coasters, fridge magnets and key rings etc. at craft fairs, something I wish I had done much earlier in life. I give illustrated talks to clubs and societies on wildlife and other branches of photography that I have been involved in.
