Everyone has been posting images of the super blood moon – a rare combination of a lunar eclipse and a full moon being closer than usual. The event happened in the early hours of the morning when I was fast asleep. But, when I saw the moon rising on the horizon at about 7.30pm, I couldn’t resist taking a photo – it had a beautiful yellow glow and looked enormous!
Photographs of the moon all seem pretty similar to me unless there is some interesting foreground to add a bit of depth. Unfortunately, laziness combined with tiredness prevented me from heading out into the Peak District to put what I know into practice. I’d spent the day watching the Rugby World Cup in Birmingham (Uruguay vs Australia) and was still recovering from the remnants of a cold, so the top of my road was as far as I could muster.
