Here is what the blood red Total Lunar Eclipse of 2010 looked like last night:

Total Lunar Eclipse 2010

After taking a long break, I’m now back to posting as usual. Currently finishing up: “indoors flash photography using off-camera flash” and tomorrow will be hopefully posting two new articles – “how to take portraits indoors with a Christmas tree” and “how to photograph a lunar eclipse” (yes, info on how the above image was taken will also be posted in detail). Stay tuned!

    Powerful image – one could well imagine that such a sinister scene could be portrayed as being a harbinger of evil times…!

    Hold on to nasim’s instructions on how to photograph lunar eclipses, because

    the next total eclipse of the Moon will occur on June 15, 2011.

    OK, Now I am really mad I didn’t get out of bed to see this. This is the best photo I have seen so far of the eclipse – excellent job Nasim.

    • Tom, thank you! :) No worries, I will let you know earlier next time.

    I like the Image : Star-Time 239474/73730-N55 : Spaceship enterprise arriving a moon-like mini-planet after falling into a Warp-Gap – Scotty ! slow down the machines …

      LoL :) that looks like Mars rather than the moon ! More Total Recall than Star Trek.

      tell me that’s post-shot processing and not the color of the moon as it appeared to the naked eye !

    I was out trying to get what I could on my Nikon D5000. Woke our Granddaughter up to take her with us and we saw and watched more clouds. We did get a glimpse here and there but at age ten our Granddaughter will have seen and will know why it happened. I will print your pictures out for her so she can see what it really looked like.Thanks for doing that. I loved the differant phases on the one picture.Great job.I hope I can get a 1/4 as good as you.

    • Thank you for your feedback Mary! Don’t worry, you will get better at taking pictures. Took me about four years to get to where I am now and I know that I still need to learn a lot!

  9. That is a beautiful image thank you for sharing that moment with us.

    Thanks for sharing the wallpaper too.
