The Bloody Moon
Easton, WA
I was planning on going to Kerry Park in Seattle to photograph the Blood Moon rise up over the city, but after inspecting the radar maps I pulled an audible and drove to the Easton Ponds (my favorite spot for Autumn photography 1, 2, 3). The clouds finally broke once I got over the Pass.
I used the Canon 7D instead of the 5Dmk3 because I wanted to exploit the 1.6x crop factor. I used the Canon 100-400 with a Canon 2X teleconverter which gave me an effective focal length of 1280mm. This is my first real time photographing the moon and I had no idea how fast everything moves when zoomed in at 1280mm.
Settings for the three “normal” moon shots: ISO 400, 1/40 sec, f/25. I had to crank up the ISO to 3200 at 1/4 sec and f/11 for the blood moon shot. The 7D is not a winner in low light. Some thin whispy clouds started to roll in when the blood finally revealed itself. Bad timing.
Why do they call it a “Blood Moon”? Read the Wiki to find out why.
The next lunar eclipse is set for Oct 8th starting at 2:14 am for us West Coast folks.
