The Flowers: Mutant Peace, Peonies and Rio Samba.
The western clouds were beautiful, but not promising for a clear sky in the wee hours of the morning when the Super Flower Moon gets bloody. I’ll get up a 3:00am and check the sky.
The Super Flower Moon Rise.

Super-wide-angle view of the Super Flower Moon rising over the Sandias and Rio Grande.

Can you find Venus?
You should be able to see Venus in the above photo.
There was nice color in the west, but I missed most of it photographing the moon.

Tim – your positioning of the photos on your posts is brilliant. The evolving moon captures are magnificent.
Thanks, Rebecca. I’m happy you like them. The big question is will I get the eclipse free of clouds? Did you ever see my blood moon photos from 2015 and 2018/:
The blood moon in the morning will be like the 2018 blood moon.
Excellent photos. Thank you, Tim – just placed them in my Reading Room for tomorrow!
Great. Thanks, Rebecca. I appreciate. I got an interesting blood moon this morning.
Gorgeous Timothy! One and all.
Nature in its finest glory.
Great photographs, Tim! The colours are so beautiful…
Awesome shots of the Flower moon !
Here clouds and rain… 😦
Thanks, Rudi. Starting to cloud up here. I lost the eclipse in the clouds before it was fully eclipsed this morning.
Awwww… Super Super Flower & Moon & skies… I hope you don’t mind if I stay here a while linger to absorb the beauty! 😉🌻
Stay as long as you would like. Thanks, Marina. I appreciate you very much.
Likewise, my friend and …I will!
Spectacular Tim! Each and every one of them are spectacular!
A wonderful gallery you shared. Ours was blocked by clouds, could just see some light behind. Venus sure pops out in your shots!
Thanks, Maj & Sher. I got most of the eclipse this morning.
That is cool glad that worked out for you!
An overload of outstanding treats for us. You are on a rose roll – the lower right is my favorite. Great moon sequence and that creative sky … and the final image was a great capper on the collection.
Thanks, Frank. Lots of photos go into a moon rise with flowers and roses.
Wow, these moon images! Just magnificent all the way around.
Thanks, Silvia. I’m happy you like them.
Thanks for the moon show, Tim! Yes, I can spot Venus. Entirely overcast here this morning, too. Glad you were able to catch it! That one rose looks like an entire sunrise in a flower.
You are welcome, Lavinia. I got the blood moon almost fully eclipsed. I lost it behind trees and when I walked to the road where I would have been able to see it again, it had slipped behind clouds.
Your passion and dedication for photography yields a bountiful harvest, Tim! Thanks for those photos of the moon and the blooms, and as always, those ever changing skies. 🙂
Amazing photos as always. The Super Flower Moon in the clouds is absolutely stunning.
Thanks, Lizzie. When clouds do cover up the moon they really add interest.
Tim, the cloud-scapes you get continue to leave me breathless. I never see anything like that here. The flowers are gorgeous too. Hugs on the wing.
Since we’re currently in the east, we’re not seeing any of the lunar eclipse … so we’re counting on you, Tim. 🙂
I got some of it this morning. Thanks, David.
These are insane, Tim! I managed to get shots at around 10, then 12:30 before I had to force myself to get to bed. No way they are this wonderful. I’ll have to “play” with mine a bit, methinks.
Your skies! Your roses! The Moon! What a fabulous post.
Thanks, Dale. I’m sure your shots are excellent. I did get the moon almost fully eclipsed before it slipped behind trees and clouds.
I was not at my best when I took them so I’ll hve to take a closer look on my computer. It was late, I was frazzled and didn’t use a tripod (not that I ever do!). Oh wow! You were in a section of the world that could see it!
You don’t need no stinking tripod for photos of the full moon as it’s daylight settings on the exposures. I had to get out my tripod for the eclipse. The eposures get long to over a second. There are 12 to 15 stops difference between a full moon and an eclipsed moon.
I hear ya and some of the photos are not bad. If I can get my butt into gear, I’ll share.
Cool moon shots
Fabulous, Tim, both the skies and the flowers!
all these photos are magnificent! Wow!
Thanks, Flo. Stay tuned I have a few blood moon shots from this morning.
Beautiful shots of the flowers, moon and sky!
Wow, Tim! Your flower photos are so awesome, they almost don’t seem real! Fantastic photos of that crazy moon, I missed the whole thing, too early for me!
Blown away by all of these shots! The flowers are absolutely gorgeous, the colours bursting out of them are mesmerising! Your moon and sky shots are so good I feel like I’m not even looking at photographs!
Thanks, Al. I’m really happy you liked them.
Me too. Grrreat!
Of course, I’m not jealous… Oh, no.
Gorgeous pictures!!! Missed out seeming the moon in person but I’m happy to see them now! 🙂
Wow! What a stunning collection … !
Cool moon shots and the flowers have bloomed here!!!
Nice to hear your flowers have bloomed. Thanks, Teri.
And all of the veggies and herbs are out in the garden.
How productive are you? I’m just trying to water wat we have.
Such amazing shots of the moon and gorgeous flowers!
