A few Seconds of Lunar Eclipse

I wasn't really expecting to see the lunar eclipse last night. The totality started at 21;22 local time (MET) and ended at 23:02:42.

I shot following picture at 22:02 and had no hope to see anything within the hour:



But then at 23:01:29 - one minute before the totality ended, the clouds broke for just a few seconds and I got this:

Lunar Eclipse, June 15, 2011

Supermoonlight

While the weather prevented super moon photography on Saturday here in Central Switzerland, it cleared up on Sunday and even though it was just 98.54% full, the light was still spectacular. Just to make it clear, I have not shot a single exposure with the moon in the frame, I only used the moon as a reflector of the sunlight for my photographs.

All but the last picture shown here were shot in Brunnen at Lake Lucerne. The last picture shows Lake Lauerz with Rigi in the background.

I created a gallery on my Portfolio site with more supermoonlight photographs.
