The moon from a rooftop in West London, England. Getting ready for the big Lunar Eclipse event ! Some clouds rolling over now. Picturesque, but will the totality be obscured ? Will I wish I’d journeyed to Selsey where it’s forecast to be clear all night ?? How is it out there folks ?
Not the greatest stereo in the world, but I can never resist the attempt ! I must be overtired … I’m sure I can see a dog looking at me from up there!
Well …Total Lunar Eclipse ? I got almost totally eclipsed by clouds – dammit ! But the heavens were kind to me for a moment. I got this image on the back of my camera about five minutes ago. And then the clouds obscured everything. Can’t wait to see what my mates in Selsey got !!!
OK ! This is the photo I would have LIKED to take tonight ! It’s splendid – the most juicy I could find on Twitter. Respects to Erik Gomez Tochimani of Puebla. Great to see the stars behind – nice work !!! So now I don’t feel so bad about my cloud cover ! It was fun. If you’d been standing on the Moon at this moment, you would have seen the Earth covering the Sun, but filtering its light all around its circumference, through a whole world of sunsets. Wouldn’t it be great to do that some day !!!
Total eclipse of the moon. Now that’s what I call Nailing It !!! Last night my pal Jamie Cooper climbed a secret mountain near Brighton and got the clear skies and beauty which evaded those who stayed at home in the Smoke ! Like me !
Well, that does it. I’ve been drowning in a Slough of Despond since I got back from the City of the Angels. Sleeping, obsessing, forgetting my blessings … hmmm. I might be writing a song about it if I’m not careful! Time to get …. …. …. back on the bike !!! AWAY, sad thoughts !!
