Weekly Photo Challenge – Refraction

 

For this challenge I can’t help but enter my pics from the Lunar Eclipse a couple of weeks ago.

 

(This challenge by the way refreshes with a new theme every Friday.)

      Oh yeah so you got to experience it? It came out more red in my camera than I could see with my own eye. Amazing how it went from super bright, glowing light to this fading red. Not sure I’ve seen a lunar eclipse before so I’m glad I caught it. Did you get up on purpose to catch it?

        Sadly, I’m up at 4:45AM M-F for work. I went out about 5:15 to 5:45, then watched it as I drove to work 6:30-7. It was really red early, then got huge on the drive, however not red.

    Not very often do you see a photo that allows your eyes to aid your mind in seeing space from Earth. The first image where the moonbeams stream through the trees allow me to go beyond those clouds. Beautiful. And the lunar eclipse shots are so warm and clear

      That night was so, so bright, I love that effect a full moon has. It felt like 5, 6, 7 in the morning at midnight or so. Like daylight by moonlight…pretty sure that’s in one of my poems ;). We are so blessed and privileged to witness such beauty of life. 😀
