Super Wolf Blood Moon

Just like an infomercial where they say, “But wait, there’s more!”

Sunday night I was thrilled to watch the lunar eclipse from my balcony. The skies were clear and it was magical seeing it and recording it photographically.

After capturing the last pictures I posted yesterday, I went inside to warm up. Then, I went back out to see the blood moon and got these shots. Unfiltered, the moon looks more purple than red.

Lunar eclipse photos from my balcony in the Rocky Mountains. I was fortunate to have a clear evening sky.

These photos were taken approximately every 5 minutes.

Inspiration from a poet

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

This quote from Mary Oliver has been something I’ve thought about since I first discovered it in college. After Mary Oliver’s death was announced yesterday, I saw it on my social media newsfeeds. I have a few poetry collections and went back to reread some favorites. I also came across this quote which defines my day-to-day life.

“Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.”
