Eclipsed

Thanks to Jay calling me at 3:30 in the morning I was able to drag myself out of bed and head out to the Harrier Marsh Wildlife Management Area. This has long been one of my favorite places to go sky watching and Tuesday morning found it abandoned. Perfect conditions.

I did manage to take a few pictures, but confess to not be particularly satisfied with any of them, but I did learn tons and I look forward to the next lunar eclipse. What I got is shown below. It should be noted that most of these pictures are fairly heavily cropped so don’t think I was packing a super long lens out there. Perhaps I’ll get such a lens for next time.

The People’s Choice – Round Two

I appreciate the input from the ten people who answered my call to help select my entries into the Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest. Thank you.

After one round of feedback, 4 pictures have been overwhelmingly voted into the Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest. However, I can enter 6 pictures. So I’m looking for feedback on those last two pictures. I have placed the 5 pictures that all tied with the same amount of votes for 5th place. Please take the time to select two of those 5 pictures that you think I should enter into the Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest. The five contenders are:

So I’ve weened the field of contenders down to 16. What lies below are the 16 photos I’m considering for the Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest. I can enter six images, so please feel free to give me your opinion on what pictures you think I should enter. It really isn’t difficult or hard to leave comments on this “blog”.

It should be pointed out that these are not the actual names of the pictures, but just something to call them by at this time.

Lost My Mode

So I lost my mode on Friday and haven’t been able to get it back. I know there are those of you who are sitting on the edge of your seats waiting for Part III of Reflections on the Last Few Days. I just haven’t been able to get into my mode and I don’t want to just throw up some schlock just to get something up. Perhaps later this evening something will come to me. I just want to take this time to clarify something about the previous blog. I did get one angry phone call from a person who felt that they were not properly characterized. So I would like to clarify this point for this person. Jay feels that I have characterized him as a two dimensional person. Just a man with a healthy affection for the female mammaries. He does not deny that this is a correct facet of his being. He would just like it pointed out that he is also against cancer. So I’m taking up some time to point out that Jay is against cancer.

I’m also just going to throw this out there at you. I missed the eclipse on Saturday night, but I did get out to enjoy tonight’s full moon. Below is some photographic evidence of that enjoyment.

I’m not entirely satisfied with this image, so I might just have to go out there and get another one.
