Disappointed not to be able to witness this month’s “super blue blood moon” on the east coast, and seduced by all the attendant hype surrounding it’s anticipated display, I made a crazy, spontaneous decision to head west so that I would be able to see and photograph it.  Of course I did as much research as I could in terms of choosing a suitable location; somewhere where it wouldn’t rain, and somewhere where I would be able to see most of it’s progression, so here I am in the town of Twenty Nine Palms, just outside the Joshua Tree National Park.  The first afternoon after flying from Charleston was spent getting my bearings and hunting for a suitable location from which to shoot this major event.  Here are a couple photographs from that day.
