2014 April 15th, Total Lunar Eclipse




Total Lunar Eclipse above Big Island Hawaii



My camera is Canon 7D with EF 300mm f2.8L lens Extender EF 2X lens and a portable mount.



This image take at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the red volcano before is Kilauea. A total lunar eclipse just show above the beautiful island.  I take the picture every 40 seconds when the Moon goes into the umbra of the earth. It last more than 3 hours.  Standing here, it is very cold but I can feel not only the changing of the moon color, but also the emotion of the volcano fire. It will be definitely branded on my memory. My camera is Canon 5D with EF 24mm f1.4L lens. I compose them finally.  At that night many people reach the Jaggar Museum which is the best lookout point of moon and volcano.  Luckily, there is a little clouds at the beginning and the ending of the period, there is no clouds during the total period. The clouds reflect the red light of volcano. That is a fantastic view.
