Weekly Winners February 17-23

February 17-23
I didn’t hear about the lunar eclipse the other day. So – I didn’t try to get any pictures of it. Coincidentally, however, I decided it was a good night to go out and take some pictures of the moon. This decision came a couple hours after the eclipse. This is what I got.

I’m not sure what the other heavenly body is. I noticed what I thought was a star close to the moon before I took the photo. I don’t think this is a star.

    That’s an amazing photo!

  3. pretty

  4. I think that that shot is better than the actual eclipse!

  5. I missed the eclipse, too. I was looking at another moon… giving Braden a bath. ;-P

    It’s a reflection of the diafragma of your camera, but I love the picture!

    Maybe it’s a ghost!!!

    It’s a great shot!

  8. I attempted to photography the eclipse. Without a tripod or decent place to put the camera, I got some odd results!

    Amazing shot, Eve! Love it!

    That is worthy of the word awesome! Job well done.

  11. Very interesting photo. My little digital camera never captures moon shots when I try to snap them. It’s still raining in So Cal but Molly and I did get outside for a few minutes to play with a visiting dog at a neighbor’s. They’re both muddy messes at the moment however.
    Hugs and blessings,

  12. Great shot! I’m never able to get moon shots with my little digital camera 😦 Great job!

    You got a much better moon shot than I did. Mind you I did try for the actual eclipse. What is a diafragma?

    Thats pretty cool shot Eve! 😀

    Diafragma: English “diaphragm”
    “In optics, a diaphragm is a thin opaque structure with an opening (aperture) at its centre.” Wikipedia

    Wow! what a beauty! Isn’t that not the Moon?

    The very bright body with the ‘halo’ on the right is the moon. The other round light is not. Jientje is probably correct when she says it’s a reflection.
