This morning I got up nice and early hoping that I was going to catch a glimpse of the lunar eclipse. Well part one of the plan was going well, 04.30 and the alarm went off and I got dressed. This is by far the furthest I had gotten in a long time for a morning of shooting from the comforts of my home.
A few months ago when tracking down possible night shoots on my phone I noticed a lunar eclipse was due around the time I was set to depart from Newcastle, so I'd been quite excited about it for a while as it would mark my last day quite befittingly.
Last night however I checked the weather apps and noticed a distinct layer of medium and high level clouds forecast for the area. It was almost enough for me not to bother, but really it was a 50/50. That is if the moon showed it would like be a boring sunrise, or the other way around.
As it happened Mother nature had other ideas, so after standing on the lighthouse driveway for about an hour hoping for even a glimpse of red I ended up turning the camera around and that is exactly what I was starting to.
One thing I learnt from my recent shoot in Coonabarabran was patience, remember to be patient in your photography. Take the time to expose, compose, and capture and the photo is the perfect reward for your effort.
After being blessed with a light show this morning I walked back to the car with a wonderful joyful feeling. I enjoyed my photography, it was my last day here, and the future is exciting...
If you do like my photography why not considering buying a print and have it hanging on your wall. Photos are better as prints after all and it helps me to keep up my artform.
Good morning all,
