Shooting the Super Blood Moon

It seemed like the whole world was looking up last night, observing the lunar eclipse/ super-moon combo. I took advantage of the low light pollution here in Albuquerque, and took a little hike outside of town with my father.

Starting around halfway into the eclipse, I found myself getting very bored. Staring at this slow-moving lump of red was not very interesting, and there was no good way to include other elements into the foreground, especially using the 400mm focal length. I set my camera onto a timer, and started to walk around for a bit.

Taking a nice stretch, and wandering down the path a ways, I found myself looking to the mountains directly opposite of where I was shooting the moon. What I found there, was much more interesting than any old moon.

Where'd that come from?

I found this to be a sort of testament to the ogling of the moon itself: We spent all the time to take photos of the moon, and we ignore the things that are constantly around us, and just as (if not more) beautiful.
