I was shocked that we had clear skies here in Chicagoland. I stayed out and shot the eclipse in the frigid temps because I had this eclipse phase composite in mind. After the first hour I thought, "hmmm, maybe I'll only do half of the phases 😆." but I'm glad I stuck it out. I had 6 hand warmers stuffed in my clothes and I went to bed with those hand warmers (woke up later when said warmers were burning my arm 🤣). There are 12 stops of light changes in a full eclipse, so lots of setting changes happening. I shot the full range of phases, but I wanted the moons to be larger, so I only included a fraction of them here. The moon burst was taken at the end with a different lens. The foreground was taken at Zion National Park last March right before a full moon rising, so it worked well to be able to use this image. I often take images and save them for other projects down the road.
The second photo was the initial composite.
Today’s insight; chemistry is hard and I have performance anxiety. Seriously considering a change of career. I could drive a truck or something. Driving is fun.
Unless someone out there maybe want to offer me a freelance job as nature photographer. Anyone? ✨

Here’s a long exposure of the low lighthouse at Burnham last week. So windy, but made for a good sky
Day 4 of our trip to Iceland this girl finally showed up! Although I only got to see you from afar, Aurora my girl, you are beautiful! Oh and the tail end of the milky way is also on the shot! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you seen the elusive Aurora Borealis/Northern lights? Or maybe you want to see it?

En mi ciudad no pudimos ver el eclipse rojo ( #redmoon ) debido a que estaba nublado, vaya coincidencia. Había planeado tanto tomarle fotos, pero no se pudo, eso no fue impedimento para admirarla y tomarle foto al siguiente día, aqui el resultado, espero les guste tanto como a mi.
Por primera vez logro tomarle fotos a un eclipse lunar! Al comienzo habia perdido las esperanzas porque por mi casa estaba súper nublado, luego decidí moverme hacia el oeste donde a los pocos kilómetros el cielo ya estaba despejado. Así que desde un parqueo empezé a tomar fotos durante todo el proceso del eclipse. Definitivamente una hermosa noche y espectacular acontecimiento astronómico!
Fotos tomadas con el lente Tamron 150-600mm y cámara en función DX. Esta foto en específico es con el 600mm, f8.0, ISO 3200 y 1 segundo de exposición.

One night in the middle of the Namibian deserts. We were camping in Sossusvlei and even thought the sand dunes are the big attraction there, the night skies are so dark there so I did not sleep much during the nights either. The moon kind of surprised me when it started to glow in the horizon. The sky was beautiful but you had to pay attention to the ground also so you don't get bitten by any desert night crawler.

The super bleeding coyote helicopter lobster moon. Or whatever it’s called. I can’t keep up with all that nonsense.

The perfect combination of landscape and astroscape meeting in one of the worlds most extraordinary locations, Milford Sound.
Where sheer mountains rise out of the sea and are framed gracefully by the milkyway galaxy setting in what will be a night I will never forget!

We have only about a billion years or so before the moon gets too far away for total lunar eclipses to happen. Gotta enjoy them while we can.
