Blood Moon Rising over the Texas Hill Co

Texas Hill Country

The super moon of 2015 rose in the evening on Sept 27th, and quickly became the blood moon. While conditions were less than ideal, the full blood moon did show through the clouds briefly in my time along the Pedernales River in the Texas Hill Country. While I had hoped to show the sequence of the moon as moved across the sky, this photograph was about the only opportunity presented to me on this evening. This image is a composite of several images – one for the foreground, one for the sky, and then the last to gain correct exposure of the moon – and shows what it looked like to the human eye.
