Lunar Eclipse

I tried to get some shots of last night's lunar eclipse, but the moon kept going in and out of view behind the clouds. I managed to get a few shots off, though, so here they are. The moon is actually tricky to shoot because it's just reflected sunlight, so it's much brighter than you'd think ... until it goes into shadow. In one of the pics, you can see how the bright part of the moon is completely blown out in order to get the shaded part.
