lunar eclipse

I had already written off the eclipse, as it seemed like it was going to be pretty cloudy this evening. So I didn’t bother reading up on what to do.

Pity. Because although the intrepid Wellington Flickrites seemed to be in the clouds too from time to time there were enough clear patches for me at home to squeeze off a hasty few before I got too cold and retreated indoors.

Here’s the best of a bad bunch:

eclipse (ii)

Better luck in 2014. Although I’m sure we’ll see some pretty good photos on Flickr shortly from the better prepared out there.
