TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE

Photos

The sky was covered 100% with high thin clouds, so I wasn't sure how these were going to come out. This one turned out the best and was the longest exposure I took while the moon was totally eclipsed. I was also using my new Nikon F4 for the first time and was quite impressed with the ease of use and added functionality (over the F2). I think it has definitely replaced my F2 as my favorite camera body.
