It was one of those ‘seemed a good idea at the time’ moments.
Maybe I was a vampire in a previous life, but I had always found it easier to write my books and stories in the early hours.
Normally this wasn’t a problem, but with my book release imminent, a book signing arranged for next week, and builders creating havoc, I needed to be up at a respectable time.
Despite this I decided to sit up to see the red blood moon and total eclipse.
Photography has never been my forte; in fact it was a standing joke that the camera to suit me best would be a Kodak Brownie.
Armed with a second hand replacement when my favourite ‘point and shoot’ was beyond repair, I chatted to online friends whilst awaiting the spectacular event. Conflicting times had me confused until I realised that with modern communications there were several time zones and continents involved.
Despite the sunshine during the day it had turned into a chilly, slightly misty evening although at first a bright, white, normal moon was visible.
The average of four hours sleep a night over the previous few weeks was taking its toll. Nevertheless, I braved the elements to capture the historical moment.
The result can be soon on the attached photos. I hope you enjoy them, At least the final one came out well, even if I did miss the blood red moon. 😀
