Photography: Monumental Eclipse
Eclipse at the Washington Monument, February 20, 2008
I was part of a small group of photographers last night trying to capture an image of the full eclipse, with the context of the Washington Monument in the foreground. I learned my lesson from the brutally cold sunrise shoot last weekend and basically dressed to ski last night. Early in the eclipse, I used the fast moving clouds associated with our departing clipper storm to dim the moon and give the sky a streaked appearance. As the moon went to full eclipse, the clouds disappeared and the moon took on the characteristic reddish glow. See below for more photos, including the full eclipse.
