Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!


Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

Skywatch Friday: blood moon


It's Skywatch Friday, and probably like many other participants, I have a picture of the lunar eclipse to show you! Could you see it from where you live? It was pretty awe inspiring. I took this shot at exactly 1:23AM Mountain Standard Time. Once the moon was in full eclipse, the "blood" color became truly evident, especially in photos (I did not manipulate this at all, other than cropping and removing "noise"). Beautiful! It was worth standing outside in my front yard in 28 degree temperatures! Below is an animated GIF of the eclipse in progress. Since I took so many pictures, I thought I'd make an animation for you (apologies that this is not scientific -- my tripod kept shifting, so the moon isn't quite following its true trajectory here).

Great set of images. You even got Mars in the background of a few of them. Nice work.

This is awesome! Love the animation. I tried (unsuccessfully) to do something similar to this.

Ah, so that's Mars back there! A blood moon indeed.

We had overcast skies that night, so I missed it.
