    Super Blood Wolf Moon-Total Lunar Eclipse 2019

    The Super Blue Blood Wolf Moon Total Lunar Eclipse 2019 was fully visible in Wisconsin. I hope those of you who wanted to watch this amazing event was able to do so. If you didn’t I’ll share with you what I was able to photograph through the different stages of the eclipse.   The Lunar eclipse began here around 8:36 pm CST on Sunday Jan. 20th. When the Penumbral Eclipse begins that means the Earth’s penumbra starts touching the Moon’s surface. The above photo was taken at 9:30 pm so it took it about an hour to reach this shadow. Here we are at 9:47 pm the shadow is getting…

    Walking on water-Wisconsin Style

    Walking on water Wisconsin style, do as a Wisconsinite would do. When you live in the land of lakes and very cold weather what do you get, a lot of fun! We do a little bit of everything here when things freeze over. The big one of course is Ice Fishing. There are Ice shakes all over the ice as far as the eye could see. Ice fishing is a favorite pastime here, not just for the fishing. It’s a time for family and friend to get together and have a great time. Some of the ice shakes are quit fancy inside, they are just like tiny homes. With built-in…

    January Wolf Moon: 97.4% Waxing Gibbous

    The January Wolf Moon: 97.4% Waxing Gibbous was really beautiful this late afternoon. It’s getting it’s self ready for the really big show on the 20th-21st. Are you all ready, cause I sure am!   I was so glad we had clear skies today because I wanted to photograph today’s moon and look at it in comparison to its Full Wolf Super Blue Blood Moon rising here on Sunday. The weather man is saying partly cloudy, so we shall see. I’ll be happy with a little view of the whole show, than having nothing at all. I wish you all clear skies and lots of fun. Be safe out there!…

  • Looking through my Nikon macro lens. Seeing up close the variety of different snowflake shapes. From stain glass to crystal designs.

    Wisconsin Snowflakes up close

    Wisconsin Snowflakes up close with my Nikon AF-S Micro NIKKOR 85mm 1:3.5G ED, yes we finally got some snow! Winter just isn’t winter without fresh fallen snow. I’ve been waiting since before Christmas to get a day time snowfall, after all when shooting tiny snowflakes. It’s best done during the day even though it’s cloudy. It was a perfect day for snowflake photography. The air was dry with the perfect temp, and with very little wind. All these combined really make for a great variety of snowflake shapes. The snowflakes with this snow fall, were mostly shaped like stained glass or crystal. Some very thick while others very thin with…

  • Looking at the moon January Waxing moon on a sunny clear day. The moon is bright white today and it's craters are very visible.

    January Moon: 77.0% Waxing Gibbous

    Today’s January Moon: 77.0% Waxing Gibbous around 3;30 pm. Anyone else getting excited about the Wolf Super Blood Lunar Eclipse Moon? I sure am, so far we may have clear skies the evening of the twentieth. I sure hope it stays that way because I’m wanting to photograph the Wolf  at it’s rising against the horizon. Making it look even larger than life! If you happen to live in my neck of the woods and your going out to watch the Super. Dress warm because it’s going to be our coldest day of the year so far. So no one getting frostbite while you’re enjoying the eclipse. I’m pretty lucky…
