My Adventures with a Lunar Eclipse - Moon Magic

Full moon, wispy clouds, soft darkness, puppies snoring.
No red moonbeams 
No amber glow
But a magical night anyway.

Before the eclipse ... the clouds can't make up their minds...

At the end ... after the full eclipse, when the clouds got bored and began drifting away, allowing me a glimpse of the partial eclipse (but no red moonbeams)...

With a little manual tweak in the coloring...

Yeah, I got carried away.

I prefer the natural color, anyway. Except for these last three, I didn't touch the color. I cropped and lightened, but otherwise they are straight out of the camera.

December Autumn

Cooler temps
a bit of morning frost
but still hanging on to the colors of autumn around here.
