T stands for........taking photographs

Hi everyone! I will start with an apology - I did make comments on everyone's posts last week but after few kept coming back at me reporting an error I checked and some are completely lost! 
I did start copying and pasting the comments to add later but not to all! Not sure whether it was my laptop or a connection issue but here at home now everything seems fine!!

We didn't get out much (intentionally) while at our caravan! We sorted out a pile of stuff for the charity shop, started a jigsaw puzzle, (left on the table for next time!)and had a few short was a cold, brisk walk along the seafront at Morecambe and my hands remained firmly in my pockets so no photos!

I did enjoy the changing views in the mornings from our dining room window though...

Sunday - early morning

Sunday - one hour later
 ...and one hour later still!
It was still very cold though!!
Monday morning it was misty

 This was just as we left at around 1.30
I was pleased that it had been a clear night though - the night of the Wolf Blood Moon.
Hubby took these photos on Sunday evening

 It was quite cloudy as you can see...
...but, I did get a shot of my own of the lunar eclipse at around 3.30...
..and a little later...
...I should have borrowed hubby's camera but at 5.00am I wasn't thinking straight!
We decided to go to Booths for our lunch before heading down the M6!
Here's hubby with his cup of tea and a baked potato while I had soup and a breadroll.
He still thinks it's funny when I take my T photos!

Hoping to get comments to everyone this week!

Thanks for looking, Chris

oh what a beautiful view you have from the caravan! Really lovely photos. Great pics of the blood moon and lunar eclipse! I did bundle up and go outside my door to see it but did not attempt to take my gloves off for photos.Nice of hubby to continue for our T Day photo:)

What views! And your eclipse photos are wonderful. It's times like those I wish for a real camera. That looks like potato soup, and it's making my mouth water :) Happy T Tuesday!

Love the views from the caravan and thanks for sharing the wonderful photos. Oh you poor hubby! Happy T day, hugs, Valerie

neither my phone or posh camera capture moon shots at all well, it is really frustrating- well done you! I couldn't even see the moon on the eclipse night too cloudy. Great sky shots, despite the cold (cold is ok if you wrap up well, it's getting wet I don't like!) - such changes over the time you took them.

Wow, you got photos of the super wolf blood moon! Great job, Chris. All of the photos are lovely. I get kick out of your hubby. He's such a good sport about the T-photos and has a terrific sense of humor.

Just FYI - I got your comment last week. Don't you hate when the internet does things like zap your comments?

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

Krisha said...

I did get your comment last week, sometimes my computer lies to me LOL!
I did have to log out of my blog and log back in a week ago to leave a comment though.
Spectacular photos of the wolf blood moon. I didn't even think to take photos of of it. I just stood out side with my mouth open... oooooohinh and awwwwhing!
Happy T-day

Lovely photos Chris, it was good to see the light changes as time passed by. You were lucky to get some glimpses of the moon eclipse. Not That I got up, but I'm told there was too much cloud here.
Happy T day wishes Chris.

Lovely to see the view from your caravan in all sorts of weather. It certainly is a beautiful view.
I'm doing a jigsaw too. I have one in my craft room and every now and then I sneak downstairs to add a piece.
Wow, those photos of the moon are impressive. And kudos for getting up at that unearthly hour. I couldn't be tempted although the weather heare was clear skies.
Happy T-Day,

Happy T day Chris. I always love the views from your caravan. It must be nice to be able to enjoy it every day when you get away. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

My sincere apologies for not visiting sooner, but my electricity went out about 4ish this morning. It is finally back on and I keep getting interrupted while trying to play catch-up.

I love the shots from your caravan. I feel like I have joined you there over the years and it feels different, knowing this is the last year I'll see it. Those are still wonderful shots, though, s are the ones of the eclipse. Fog and clouds kept me from getting anything good.

I had a good laugh at T and his expression. He is so sweet and is a wonderful model, too. I now want a baked potato, so I just might make one as soon as I finish here.

Thanks for your impressive photos from the caravan, your moon shots, and your food and drinks you shared with us for T this Tuesday.

johanna said...

nice views from the caravan... days are already getting longer, it is recognizable... t-day greetings also to your hubby, he always seems to be in a good mood:)

chrissie said...

Amazing photographs of your fantastic views and also of the red moon--it was too cloudy to see it here on the night.

I don't think I would want to go far at all if I had your wonderful plot with those views.

Hope T Day went well-always good to see your smiling hubby

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

Carol said...

Lovely views from your dining area. It does look wintry cold out there
I love the moon photos we had clouds here so I didn't get any. I was very disappointed!
Happy Late T Day

Rita said...

I didn't even know there was an eclipse, so I'm glad I got to see yours. I wouldn't have been able to see it if I did know about it because we were having a snowstorm that night.

I love the scenery around there. Your hubby seems like such a nice guy. Have a great rest of the week. :)

What do you mean you weren't thinking straight at 5am?! I kept bobbing up and down all night to check it at various stages, but it never got very bloody here - or at least not before it clouded over. Thank you for sharing your view - it's a breath of fresh air, for sure.
