My most memorable images of 2019

First Lunar Eclipse

On Jan. 20th, we had a crystal clear night that was the coldest of the winter. I had a big family event the next day and had not even planned to photograph the eclipse but started receiving emails and social media posts asking about the correct camera settings, etc. which I shared with them. So, seeing the interest of our students, I decided at the last minute to do it myself as well. I captured my first Lunar Eclipse shot and thought it was pretty cool.
