Untitled-1

What I was supposed to wake up to this morning and what I did…. after 2 years of planning, life got in the way and I had to cancel a month long trip to Moab and this morning was supposed to be my first day on the White Rim Trail. I am still thankful for all I have in my life, but this morning I was thinking about where I had a reservation to be…. (PS Utah picture credit to JD Dorton, the guy who helped me plan a lot of my trip)

When I got back to my truck, a local high school student working a photography project, wanted to use my Taco as a prop…. either way (in Utah or at a trail head) the truck was photographed today. (This is the June 12 POD – I messed up posting)

 

Feb. 10, 2017 Snow Moon

A full moon in February is called a snow moon. Adding to the excitement  was a lunar eclipse – not an awesome total eclipse. but the moon passes through enough shadow (called the penumbra) to create a noticeable darkening on the left side – this photo is the peak.

I spent some time looking for a foreground…

but with a 500mm Mirror lens, the moon was not big enough for the depth of field to work…
