Getting up at stupid O’clock can bring some incredible rewards for photographers in the Bay.
On Saturday 28 July 2018, hordes of weary people arose from their slumber in anticipation of the Blood Moon Lunar eclipse. In a tribute to Murphy’s Law, the one day over the last ten cloudless days, saw a blanket of cloud descend upon us for the duration of the eclipse.
Fortunately, the evening following saw a brief glimpse of the red moon rising off the east coast at Box Beach, which I was fortunate enough to be patiently waiting for.
Thankfully, for those who did wake up for the original blood moon, they were treated to one of the most spectacular sunrises that had been seen in days.
The Bay never disappoints when it comes to showing off its beauty.
