Long Exposure of Huntington Dr, Arcadia, CA at dusk. 09.27.2015

Last night I walked out to my front yard at about 7PM PDT to check on the look of the sky to determine whether or not I would be able to capture an image of the Super Blood Moon lunar eclipse. I quickly discovered that two things were working against me with this plan: 1 - the eclipse started at 6:15PM PDT and it is still light at that time, and 2 - there was low cloud cover which made viewing the moon nearly impossible.

I was a little bummed, but then again I didn't really have the time to make an event out of the eclipse and travel to an optimum viewing location. So I wasn't really that disappointed. However, since I had my camera and tripod all set up I decided to snap a few long exposure shots and take advantage of the moment.
