Nature is Beauty

Early yesterday morning I took the dogs for they usual mooch around the village, and had to take this shot.  I got a little damp as I was using the grass to steady my hand.

So I hear there's this Big Red thing in the sky this week.

So I decided to set my Fitbit silent alarm for 3am on the morning of the 28th September 2015 to see if I could capture the amazing astrological event on film for my children who would be tucked up in bed and would not witness this until they were 25.

I decided to have a go and set up my Canon 450D with Tamron 70-300mm lens around 11pm so that I did not have to fiddle with it at 3am.

So when my alarm went off at 3am again there was a small voice in my head saying - "do you really want to get up at this time?"
I went downstairs even Basil Dog did not stir in the kitchen, whilst I negotiated my way around the kitchen table to the back door. 

Luckily without causing a scene and making the neighbours alert the local constabulary to the unusal rufflings going on next door.  I set up my tripod outside and started to point to the sky. I was so glad to be there the sky had a red hue about it and the moon looked fantastic.  I even heard a 3:15am a small tweet tweet from the birds in the hedgerow, and the local tawny owl.

I did have one little oppsie but it still looked really interesting so have included it into this post!
