As luck would have it, I found myself in Orleans for dinner and took advantage of the opportunity to visit Petrie Island to watch and capture the moon rise. The weather was amazing with just a light cool breeze and the sky was clear.
After many shots, I headed home to set my camera up on the tripod and try to capture the lunar eclipse. I got a few shots before the full eclipse but most were blurry – it’s harder than I thought to manually focus on a dark object so far away! The clouds came in but there were still a few clear spots and I managed to get a somewhat ok picture of the eclipse.
The pictures below were all taken on the beach at Petrie Island in Orleans, ON, with the exception of the last photo – blood moon/lunar eclipse – which was taken at my home in Gatineau.
