December 21 2010 Lunar Eclipse Naples FL

The weather in Naples, FL on December 21, 2010 was clear enough to allow me to get some lunar eclipse photos. I found the NYIP eclipse page very helpful for timing and exposure guidance.
I used a Canon 50D, EF 70-200 f/2.8 L IS and an EF 2x ii.
Exposing for 2 seconds or more was enough to for the moon's movement to blur the photo. With the EF-2x on, apertures wider than F/8 didn't seem sharp enough. ISOs above 800 seemed to lose too much detail to noise. I only used IS while focusing in live view. And a cable release and mirror lock up seemed to help.

Ry loves Maui... and so do we.

Ry tries to step into a pond at the Garden of Eden Arboretum on the road to Hana.

Ry reaches to pull down another flower. 

More things to grab. 

 Checking out the view from our porch in Hana.

Playing on the black sand beach near Hana. 

 Pool time for Ry.

 Resting on the green at #8.

 Climbing the chair by the pool.

Relaxing at the end of the day at Hana.

Lion Kitty

Alejandro needed a haircut. So I spent about a month hacking away at his fur until he looked a bit like the fierce and feisty lion that he really is.
