the invisible eclipse moon

alas, the much-ballyhooed lunar eclipse of July 27, 2018 was not visible to north americans. however, on the very early morning of the 28th, the gorgeous full moon, after the eclipse, was making its way to the horizon in the western skies. from my home in st. catharines, ontario, i have a western exposure and can usually see the moon in the early morning… this one was special as it was a copper or orange colour on a clear, dark blue morning sky. photographed with my 150mm-600mm lens and then interpolated to enlarge for printing, i am rather happy with this one! ūüėČ

stone to crystal

Stone To Crystal

no longer living in toronto, i did have the opportunity to stay at the posh park hyatt across the street from the royal ontario museum (rom) this past summer. a notoriously early riser,¬†i let my body alarm clock wake me as usual; by the time i¬†awoke at around 5:15am, daybreak had already begun. i hurried out to the streets and set up to shoot the latest incarnation of the rom buildings. on the left is the original facade from the early 1900’s while the right depicts the new, ultra-modern entrance to the museum known as ‘the crystal’.

the moon was indeed out and a pick-up truck stopped for a traffic light along bloor street. the cloudless sky was that early morning blue and it reflected off of the crystal’s glass panels.

LA Night

LA Night

thanks again to adrian bellani, who took the time out to drive me around town. this was my second attempt at photographing the los angeles skyline from the griffith observatory grounds. we tried a couple of nights earlier but the entire landscape was fogged out. on this night… success¬†–¬†and a full moon to boot!!

harvest moon from the hills

Harvest Moon From The Hills

full moon; supermoon; harvest moon… what a glorious sight on monday, september 8th, 2014 from the paramin hills in trinidad. headed up there early to catch the sunset before my wife and daugther had their yoga class ‘under the full moon’ at the north deck (a banquet facility under and open sky with beautiful coastal views) – i had promised myself that i would attempt to photograph the next supermoon from those hills; so the opportunity was there!

quite frankly it snuck up on me and it made its appearance earlier than anticipated. i had been photographing a so-so sunset in the other direction, when i noticed it in the sky already. went back to the car, switched up lenses and started shooting into the night sky…

templo de debod

b007-17revthe templo de debod is an ancient egyptian monument dating back to the 4th century bc that was transplanted to madrid, spain in the early 1970’s. originally built in the nile valley of egypt, it was given to spain when the aswan dam was built, threatening the monument.

here it is photographed under a full moon on a lovely august summer night. unfortunately, the pools surrounding the monument were not filled during my visit. it would have been nice to have those reflections off the pools! maybe next time… ūüėČ
