Every Photographer’s Dream…

It’s every photographer’s dream to get a shot such as this. And this morning, I managed to shoot this! :)

Now that’s what I call perfect timing! (click on the photos below to enjoy the large size pictures)

For the next plane that came along a few minutes later, the sun already stood too high…

Incredible 22° Halo around the Sun

I was so fortunate to witness this amazing phenomenon this morning – photo taken from my balcony.

For those interested, this is called a 22° Halo and it is produced by light interacting with ice crystals in the atmosphere…

Supermoon Lunar Eclipse 28 September 2015

My photos of last night’s supermoon lunar eclipse. I stayed up for it from 1am to 5am, and even though my fibro/RA pain is killing me right now (which was expected) and I’m feeling nauseous and my coordination is out the window, it was oh so worth it! After all, the next total lunar eclipse visible in this part of the world isn’t until January 2019, and the next supermoon eclipse is in 2033 (who knows if we’re even still alive by then, hahah!).

Perseids Meteor Shower 2012

Don´t forget, folks! Get yourself out to a really really dark location tonight after midnight to watch the Perseids, best seen in the Eastern sky (along with the brilliant Venus, Jupiter and the crescent moon) an hour or so before dawn.

Last year I was freezing my a*se off watching this and only managed to catch two shooting stars, but this year Lanzarote is sweltering in a heatwave and it will still be around 27 degrees Celsius in the early morning hours.  I hope I won´t be too groggy to drive cause this time I want to be going out there somewhere, maybe to La Asomada, where there is a lot less background light… *sets alarm

So…… Happy Meteor Spotting!
