90% solar eclipse as seen from Metchosin, BC! Thanks to the nice fellow who allowed me to connect my camera to his telescope. What a unique experience!
I was out in the countryside last night and had the chance to view the spectacular supermoon lunar eclipse amongst dark skies. Here it is nestled in some tall beach grass in rural Metchosin near Victoria, BC.

I love storms - especially thunder storms - and I've been waiting for the chance to shoot lightning for years. But Victoria rarely, if ever, sees any. So when this powerful front came through, I took to the hills of Metchosin to watch the dazzling display unfold over downtown. And what an incredible show it was! Nature never ceases to amaze. Above are my favorite two shots from the evening, both taken with the 5D MKII and a 70-200mm 2.8 lens.
Just last week I stepped outside into my backyard and was treated to the most amazing display in the sky. I have seen halos around the moon before but nothing quite as beautiful as this. Multiple rainbows encircling a full moon, quietly floating in the air. Mother nature never fails to astound me with her abilities to create unimaginable beauty - and then in an instant, let it vanish into thin air.
