Red Moon Rise: A Photographer's Journey Through the Lunar Eclipse 2022 in Canada


The night of the Lunar Eclipse 2022 in Canada was a truly magical experience. As a passionate photographer, I knew that I had to capture this momentous occasion. I arrived at my chosen location, overlooking the vast expanse of the Canadian wilderness, just before 2am. The sky was clear, the stars were shining bright, and the moon was beginning to rise, casting a soft glow over the landscape.


I wanted to capture the full progression of the lunar eclipse, from the start of the penumbral phase, to the total lunar eclipse and beyond. To do this, I would need to stack multiple images, taken at different intervals throughout the night for which I have set up my camera, adjusting the settings to allow time interval shots.


As the night wore on, the moon slowly moved into the Earth's shadow. The change was gradual, but I could see the red hue starting to appear on the moon's surface. This was the moment I had been waiting for - the total lunar eclipse. I continued to snap pictures, capturing the beauty of the red moon as it bathed the Canadian wilderness.


As the total lunar eclipse came to an end and the moon began to move out of the Earth's shadow, I continued to take photos until the sun began to rise and the sky started to lighten. By the time I had finished taking pictures, it was 7am and the moon was starting to fade into the lightening sky.


The process of stacking the images and editing them was time-consuming, but the end result was worth it. The final image was a stunning representation of the Lunar Eclipse 2022, showing the red moon in all its glory against the dark, starry sky. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I was grateful to have captured it in such incredible detail.
