Last Full Lunar Eclipse of 2010

I caught these before and during photos of the moon for the full lunar eclipse that happened at @1:17am MT on 21 Dec 10…the winter solstice and the first day of winter.  This was the last eclipse of 2010 and the first eclipse on the solstice since 1554!!

These were both shot at 600mm, however by the full eclipse, the moon was high up above.

12 Tags of Christmas–Day 9

OK…I skipped Day 8 for now.  I don’t have the sleigh and reindeer mask that Tim uses and I haven’t quite figured out how I’m going to replicate that element of the tag since it’s so prominent.  So…I did Tag 9.  I also didn’t have the rosette die that Tim used, so I made mine by cutting out a strip of paper with decorative scissors and marking the folds on my Martha Stewart scoring board.  Time consuming, but excellent results.
