Lunar eclipse

As eclipses go, last night's wasn't a great one.  The moon went through the penumbra portion of earth's shadow and not the darker umbra.  The moon looks a bit darker on one side than the other but that's about it.   I haven't been taking many pictures this time of year so it was fun to be on the deck w/ the tripod.  A pack of coyotes were howling in the dark just past me at Gorgeous Gorge.  The moon was shining off the shiny crust of the snow in the field.  The ski hill was all lit up.  Wasn't even all that bad temp-wise, maybe in the 20's.  Nice night considering everything.
