I was stoked when i found out i was going to be in ladakh for the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century. but the weather gods didn’t exactly share my enthusiasm at first. it was cloudy pretty much all day and all night yesterday. i woke up at various points in the night to check on the sky, but there was zero visibility. finally, at 2:15 am the clouds parted and gave me a glimpse of the blood moon. after scrambling around in the dark, i managed to get a few shots off before the clouds stole the moon away again. hours spent in the cold and dark, in and out of sleep; for a few moments of this phenomenon. was it worth it? heck, yes.
