Eclipse of the Moon

16/07/2019
The first partial lunar eclipse at moonrise to be visible in Britain for nearly 13 years was keenly awaited. I positioned myself about 1 km north-west of Colmer's Hill in Dorset, giving a clear line of sight to the position of moonrise over the Isle of Portland on the horizon. While I was waiting, a herd of 25 bullocks came to investigate what I was doing in their field, completely encircling me so they could all have a look. Having persuaded them to move on by waving my tripod above my head, I then had to wait for the moon to clear some thin cloud lying on the horizon. Single exposure of 0.5 seconds at F11 and ISO 800.
