Total eclipse of the moon

Wonderfully clear night and so a little chilly, but a spectacular event.




As I stood there taking pictures every few minutes, bracketing my exposures like crazy, a dog came up and started barking at me.

“Fool!” I said “ya supposed to be barking at the moon, don’t ya know nothing?”

It snarled, wandered off and pissed on a car tyre. Next thing I know a big halogen security light flares up straight in my eyes. Now it’s hard enough to escape the sodium glare in the town here, but ruddy security lights! It was firing right at the lens too. I had to wait until it timed out before I could see again.
