Eclipse Photos

Wow! First off, I didn’t realize that it has been since the end of September that I posted anything here. So much for keeping this updated!

As many people know, there was a full lunar eclipse last night. For some reason I decided to brave the cold to watch it. I set up the tripod and managed to snap off several great shots of various stages of the eclipse. What really amazed me though was how quickly the photos were hit on flickr after I posted them!

In all of the time I have been posting images to flickr I have never seen a response like this. Up until last night my most viewed photo was a shot I titled ‘Round and ‘Round We Go that I uploaded back in August. That shot had 67 views as of last night. Four of the eclipse shots approached or exceeded that number in less than 24 hours!

The four eclipse shots that gave my view counts such a great boost are included here for your viewing pleasure. Each photo is linked to the flickr page if you’d like to see a higher resolution version or comment on any of them.
