Lunar eclipse

December 21, 2010 1 comment

Last night we had a total lunar eclipse. Although it was late (from 12:30 to 3:30AM), I decided to try my new camera and lens and take some pictures. We had some cloud cover here in Texas, and by the time coverage was total I pretty well had to stop. But here are a few pictures, showing the progression of earth’s shadow over the moon.

 

 

 

Only 94 more years to another full eclipse during the winter equinox…..

A final sunset

Today is December 31, the last day of 2009.  Fittingly, there was a fabulous sunset where we are parked in Livingston, TX.   See the picture below, although it is only a pale comparison to the vivid colors of the real thing.

Closing 2009

December 25, 2009 1 comment

As we close out the old year, mother nature made it a time to remember.  A blizzard dropped 3″ of snow on Dallas, which really doesn’t know what to do with this.  Traffic accidents, delays, and cancelled events ruled the day.  On the other hand, it also presented some scenery we aren’t used to. It was pretty!

On the other hand, it also made for some difficulties.  We were supposed to drive to Hemphill today for a family Christmas get together.  We were unable to leave.  One reason, the snow and ice on our motor home awnings over the slides prevented us from pulling in the slides.  No way we can drive with them out!  And even if we were to try, our campsite is in a bit of a valley and the road out had a steep hill with several turns.   Several inches of ice pretty well prevented us from even trying to get out.  Oh well, there’s always tomorrow….
