Lunar Eclipse

We had windless, rainy weather all weekend here on Bonaire. So, when the skies began to clear up Monday afternoon, I started thinking that I might catch a glimpse of the eclipse of the moon on Tuesday morning after all. There were scattered clouds this morning, but I got to see the moon become completely eclipsed before it sank into the haze along the western horizon.
I played around with framing the moon between the arms of a friendly cactus.
The next time we have a total eclipse at dawn, ha-ha, I'll have to find a suitable cactus that is further away, so it is more in focus. I think that would be interesting.
