Total Eclipse of the Heart


Sorry, no tripod; I think the blur was my heart beating.

 (ETA: Total lunar eclipse as seen from a Wisconsin back yard, 9:30 pm on February 20, 2008, temperature – 12 °F [-24.5°C].  Clear and cold makes for good viewing.  Also makes for funny views of the photographer; I was lying flat on my back in the squeaky cold snow, in the shadow of the neighbor’s garage to try to avoid his security light, with the camera on my chest; and timing photos by how long I could hold my breath and how long before the fingers of my right hand went numb.  The man I love was laughing at me through the window….)
