I am always gobsmacked by your photos.
Wish I could take some moon photos like yours.
I posted a moon photo on my blog this morning and it pales in comparison.

cheers, parsnip

No lunar eclipse here on the East Coast, but I was able to take a picture of a waning moon from my patio last week.

I love Tucson, but I was concentrating on the traffic on Speedway the two days we were there, I never got to notice the skies. Thanks Diane.

as always, amazing captures Diane, I love the contrast of the architecture of the cathedral against the pastel sky, and your partial lunar eclipse is awesome, so much details, I love it. And the 4:49 am shot from afar, emphasized the shadow, beautiful.

So glad you were up to see and take these excellent photos of the partial eclipse. I just realized last night about midnight that it was happening and new I'd end up sleeping through it.

Fab photos! The lunar lovelies and the cathedral grace... I did enjoy the ambience and coloring that the wispy clouds provided this past weekend...

Such a beautiful city and really - the entire state. I wish I could spend about six months just travelling around AZ and enjoying it to the fullest.
