Full moon of the month

I missed taking her at moon rise on the full moon night because the forecast said that the evening would have been cloudy and I did not bring my camera when I left house in the morning.  The forecast ended not correct that the beautiful full moon rose and I admired her beauty at the house as cooking dinner.

I got this chance next day at dawn.  The moon was already set on the west of the skies but was still there clearly.  Her beaming light could not be missed!


I think I have missed photographing full moon number of times (months?) this year.  Sky condition was main reason of why, but I was not be able to make chances for doing it either (I would like to photograph just after the moon rise).

With the hope I will get some shots for 2 more full moons to come for 2018….

Full Moon of the month

Captured last night.  Sydney weather was not that good yesterday so I wasn’t expecting her appeared in the evening.  Photographing moon is another challenge for me always.  I eventually did about 90 clicks and turned out five kept at the end.  The below are top 2.  I like the first one particularly just because of the hazy moonlight glow.

Oh my naughty Bleu made a posture looking up, as if he was going to be howling toward the moon.  😉

He will be turning to age of thirteen this weekend.  He had been suffering from eczema which likely came from allergy and he had to wear the collar for months.  So I  completely stop feeding him the food which contained chicken (including all chicken products and bi-products) then he finally was released from the collar.

Bleu, mummy is very happy for you having your birthday with no collar on.  DSC_3543 (1)DSC_3538 (1)IMG_0944 (1)

Lunar eclipse and Blood (full) Moon in July

I finally made it witnessing the astro-show in the early Saturday morning of the full moon weekend.

As far as I remembered, this was not the first lunar eclipse this year.  The first one was held in January in the midnight in Sydney (or Australia) time, but at that night, weather was not favored to us Sydney-siders, that the thick clouds rolled in in the afternoon and it was not cleared off even at midnight after all.  I remember of myself so disappointed at how it turned out, that Sydney was the only city in Australia where missed the eclipse at  that night.

This time, again, I was hence worried if I missed it again, because the forecast first said that Sydney / NSW coastline was not clear at night to next day.  🙂

On Saturday, I woke up at 4:30am, which was already in the middle of the eclipse on the phase, but I slept again until 5am (hahaha).  My initial plan was to go and meet the buddy at Observatory Hill, but eventually we went to a local park where the impact by the light pollution was not that bad.

One more point as to why July full moon was special, this time the Moon and Mars had rose and appeared together and seen very closely as each other.  By the time they moved to the west before the dawn, and the distance of them each other was wider, but still the both was making good companions for the night.  My weekend was just good enough by opening with photographing the special full moon and also enjoyed beautiful beams when she came back on the evening sky on the following evening.

Addition on 31/07/2018:  I made this post my belated participation to  RDP#57: MOON

When I reached for the park, the eclipse came to the end of partial eclipse phase and the light light of the Moon was disappeared at the bottom.


Still a bit annoyed with urban lights, but still appreciated to see Mars on left above the Moon.
This is full moon on the following evening.
