A Moon eclipse is always something to look forward to, but often difficult to catch / photograph in Perth, on the far western edge of Australia, not to mention the Darling Ranges to the east of Perth – more often than not, the Moon has long risen before she appears above the ranges. Wednesday October 8th was doubly difficult, as clouds were forming across the sky. So we took a gamble, and some food, beer (one of us is German!) and wine (the other isn’t!) and drove 100kms east to see if we could find a suitable spot. We did, but it was difficult – well – perhaps the conditions surpassed my skills,  anyhow, here’s a selection of photographs taken over a one and half hour period (about 7.20pm to 8.50pm).
