Total lunar eclipse 2018

803_2198 [Total lunar eclipse 2018]

While planning the eclipse shoot, I fancied capturing the whole duration of the eclipse in one composite shot. 
When I arrived on the spot, I realized - to my frustration - there was nothing more impossible, given the unusually long duration of the eclipse and the limitations of my equipment. So, I had to compromise and shoot only the first half of it, as seen above.

In the center of the picture, above the Temple of Poseidon, one can see the planet Mars, the guest star of the night!

The picture was taken about 200 meters northeast of the Temple of Poseidon at Sounio
a few minutes before the total lunar eclipse started on July 27, 2018.
