and saying goodbye to Steph…. twice.

We dropped her off at Charlotte and drove away, we had checked the flight during lunch and all was good… then to find out a 2 hour delay in Charlotte meant she would miss her connection and no hope of a later flight, so we turned around and drove her to Greensboro, and a later flight, but hopefully she gets home tonight!

My night. Was supposed to drive to Fairfax, VA – but a band of thunderstorms and hail.

Feb. 10, 2017 Snow Moon

021017poda

A full moon in February is called a snow moon. Adding to the excitement  was a lunar eclipse Рnot an awesome total eclipse. but the moon passes through enough shadow (called the penumbra) to create a noticeable darkening on the left side Рthis 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…
