Supermoon Eclipse

At the risk of being the 10,000th WordPresser to post photos of tonight’s eclipse, here are two of mine. I haven’t gone through the entire set yet, just grabbed two that looked promising.


Almost to full eclipse.


The full eclipse. From our vantage point in Quincy, Mass., just south of Boston, there was a glow on the bottom right throughout the entire process of full eclipse. Exaggerated by the camera, as well.

As always, to see the photos larger, click on them. Thanks for viewing!

Travel Theme: Light

This week, Ailsa over at Where’s My Backpack challenges us to share photos of light. So many possibilities. We could go literal, with photos of actual lights, or use sunlight or moonlight – shadows, even! Maybe something that makes you feel uplifted, or light.

My contributions vary among a couple of those categories. I hope you enjoy them, and head over to Ailsa’s page to find out how to play along!


Early morning light framing the Jefferson Memorial and the Tidal Basin. Even a tiny sliver of moon shows as a point of light.


Moonlight reflected off of the water of Quincy Harbor, Houghs Neck, Mass.


Late afternoon sunlight reflected off the tips of the flower petals at Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain, Mass.
