Lunar eclipse on the 15 June 2011. The Moon was completely covered by the earth. The red coloring arises because sunlight reaching the Moon must pass through a long and dense layer of the Earth’s atmosphere, where it is scattered.

Canon 50d and canon 70-300mm 4.0 -5.6 at 300mm f/5.6 2,5 sec iso 400

Time: 21:02 GMT -1

I am a Hobby Photographer from Austria who likes to shoot a mixed bag of subjects ranging from car racing to airshows, architecture, landscape and nature and have not specialized on a specific topic.
I also like to look at all the beautiful artwork here to find some inspiration.
Thank’s to all of you for looking and commenting on my work.

    Lucky you to have seen it – we didn’t have a clear night here at all, I was so disappointed! Great photo of it!

  • Thank you angel, indeed 5 minutes later it was overcast and the sight had gone, so i was lucky to get this one!

    Superb shooting :)) Wasn’t it gorgeous ??

  • It was great, the spot i decided to take the shot was crowded with fotografers, we all had a nice happening with wine and i was also caught by local TV preparing my shot (without remote and on a brickwall because i had also forgotten the plate to fix the camera to the tripod on the other camera-very professional ;-)). So under these circumstances yes i am happy that i got the shot

    Amazing shot matey!!!

  • Thank you very much Sharon, i am glad you like it. I only wished it was a little sharper because the 70-300 5.6 is not reknown for its sharpness, but i already ordered me a better canon-bazooka.
