Day 21

So I started my Day 21 really really early this morning. My first picture was actually right at 12:00 midnight! I wanted to take a picture of the moon for the lunar eclipse. I want to add that I have NEVER done this before and I really don't know what I am doing when you photograph the moon, let alone a lunar eclipse!

Here is what our moon looked like at Midnight (right before I passed out)
I set my alarm for 2:45 a.m. so I can get up and get my tripod out and ready for the lunar eclipse. Walked outside and saw it a bit cloudy, but tried my best anyway to capture it.  IF i get to see another lunar eclipse, i want to read up a little more on how to get a better shot, but for my first time, I thought it turned out okay~

3:00 a.m.

And then when I was driving home from work tonight I saw how big the moon was STILL and thought I would take just another one, this time, it was lower and right between my trees in my back yard
(Taken at 8:30 p.m. tonight)
So only FOUR days til Christmas! I can't believe it!
