Last night my daughter woke me up to see the blood moon.
It was worth getting up for! However, I wasn't up to getting my tripod set up for a picture, as it was cold and icy on our deck.
I could use the deck rail for a tripod with my camera laying flat looking up set on "bulb" mode to catch some stars.
I layered the above image with Kim Klassen's texture "Xanthe" which brightened the stars just a bit without increasing the dark sky. The night was perfect for star gazing!
But, the blood moon was off to the side from my camera lens on the deck rail. So, I decided to streak the Moon (and Mars) with the "bulb" setting as it would be blurry anyway without a tripod. (I moved the camera with the shutter open.)
Look how bright the Moon and Mars were compared to the other stars! There wasn't enough exposure to see the other stars.
The theme at Texture Tuesday is Perfectly Imperfect. I may be stretching this a bit (you think??) as God's sky is actually pretty perfect. :) But, my photo because it couldn't be perfect...is kind of fun with the trailing moon.
It's Holy Week so I think I'll be back here next week.
I have much to share in the upcoming weeks: the abandoned house pictures I mentioned earlier... a two year old's birthday party....an antique store....an abandoned theater....a frosting recipe....
May you have blessed week and a JOYOUS EASTER!!
(My 8 y ear old daughter gave up all electronic entertainment...her idea...and she said the other day, "I'm ready for Him to be risen already!")
