A sequence of the full lunar eclipse through a thin cloud cover over Shoreline, WA, on December 20, 2010. We had a lot of clouds and even rain showers around the region last night, and I thought for a bit I was going to miss the event, but in an attempt to perservere I laid the seat back in my car in the driveway and watched through the moonroof, sporadically opening it to capture a frame between clouds and rain drops. Then as the full eclipse hit, I got about two minutes of clear sky providing just enough frames to stitch a little sequence together in Photoshop. For gear heads, I used a Nikon D300 and 400mm f/2.8 lens, and cropped the image tighter in post production. Below a single of the full lunar eclipse.
