Winter Solstice Eclipse Flip Side

Winter Solstice Eclipse Flip Side

Tucson, AZ

The is a shot taken just as the Moon was beginning to leave Earth's shadow. I had actually packed up
my gear and was getting ready to head for bed when I decided to see if there was any chance to see if
a sucker hole had opened up in the clouds so I could see how the eclipse was progressing. I got lucky
and had only some high, thin haze to deal with in this shot. I am fairly happy with the shot and the
opportunity to bump the ISO setting for one last attempt to get a decent capture.

Canon EOS 30D ,Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM
tripod, mirror lock-up, self timer full exif

other sizes: small medium original

I am so glad you managed to get this!
Where i live, it was clouds, wall to wall...
Your shot is wonderful and think, the last time the solstice and eclipse of the moon synchronized it was in the 1600 something!
wow... I wish i could have been there...
You should be proud of this shot.
