Sunday Selections #390

Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
 
The meme is now continued by River at Drifting through life.  The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent.  Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to River.  Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen. 
 
Like River I usually run with a theme.  This week I am going to be a bit more random.  Snippets from the week.


We have had some chilly mornings (which I love).






  
Despite the chilliness there are hints of spring.  The anemones are starting to bloom.  Beautifully.




 Yesterday morning I spent a happy couple of hours marvelling at the lunar eclipse.  Even by my standards it was an early start.  The mad woman and her camera were outside shortly before 4.30.  It was well worth it.  Some less than stellar photos follow ( I find getting reasonable photographs of the moon at any time a challenge).

Once the eclipse started I was amazed at how quick it was.








It snuck behind a tree here...






And a restful almost dawn to finish with....

  8. Great photos there, EC. I woke up around 3 am yesterday morning..and then just drifted in and out, but I didn't see the eclipse...very slack of me.

    It's not as chilly at present up here as it was last week and the couple of weeks before. As I always watch the weather bulletins each evening I've kept in tune with the temps down your way. It's not been as cold in the mornings here as it has been where you are, of course...but we've had some pretty chilly mornings, days and nights. A few morns have hit the zero mark, and even a little lower, I believe. Here on the mountain we're always a few degrees lower than those down on the coast or in Brisbane. I don't mind it at all. In fact, I like winter. At least one can dress to keep warm...whereas in summer it's impossible to do so to get cool.

    I hope the coming week treats you well, EC...cuddles to Jazz. :)

    1. Lee: Not slack at all. Different priorities. We have had a weird winter. Some chilly bits, some surprisingly warm bits. And too many dry bits.

  11. The moon is notoriously difficult to photograph without a tripod, but you did a great job. I always think of ancient peoples at such events, and what they must have thought of the weirdness happening in the sky. As I could see the moon in the evening outside, that is to the east, I figured the eclipse would happen in the western sky, which meant not viewable from the balcony. I would have to get dressed and go outside to see it. I didn't.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Andrew: The eclipse did indeed happen in the west (south-west). And I suppose I could have seen a little from inside, but got dressed and went out. Where I had the street to myself (except for a near neighbour heading off to work about 5.30).

      Delete
  12. LEE. Despite my statement referring to early rising, This morning I was up at 7-15 and surprised to feel the warmth of the bedroom, mainly due to the rain overnight and the mod north wind coming down from the Equator VIA Queensland.

    1. Vest: It is warmer here this morning too. We did get a tiny dribble of very welcome rain overnight, so no frost. More rain is needed and would be very, very welcome.

  18. We couldn't see the eclipse from where I live, but when I looked at the moon I saw another bright body nearby, which I believe was Mars (at least that's what news articles were saying), so it wasn't a wasted peek :)

  26. Thanks for the pictures of the eclipse. I finally get to see it! It was a night of thunder storms in England so we didn't see it.

  35. Really good lunar eclipse photos. I was going to get up for it but didn't, too tired. You got great photos. Hard to imagine you are preparing for spring when we are still in the midst of a hot summer. Every year it gets me though, that we are on far sides of the world and seasons reversed. It's logical to think of it and the why, but the reality of it, you in winter, us here in summer, seems amazing.

  36. I'm back from my world travelling. I missed the lunar eclipse, but perhaps it wasn't visible in my part of the world, I don't know. Your moon pictures are really good. I spent some time in England with my Australian cousin who lives in Mawson, it was so lovely to see her, and all my British cousins. We have been able to meet on a regular basis every 2 or 3 years, wonderful. I was amused by your frosty pictures, while it's been so hot here. And not only here.... I was in England and Scotland and then in the island of Newfoundland and it was uncharacteristically HOT everywhere. Rather worrying.

Hi EC - what a delightful array of pictures ... but particularly the ones of your eclipse - lucky you to have it so clear: solar or lunar celestial happenings always seem to cloudily accompany me ... but your photos show complete clarity for you.
