Using a new camera for the first time to take pictures of a lunar eclipse is kind of like trying out a complicated recipe for the first time on special guests. But I’m thrilled with these “turn the darn thing on and point it at the sky” results, and am inspired now to try and learn how to use it properly. It’s a so-called “bridge” camera, a middle-of-the-road device between a pocket camera and a DSLR (whut?). It’s my first step up, and I’m looking forward to exploring the woods (and everywhere else) with my new toy.

And to think I almost said “Nah . . .” and snuggled deeper into the covers when the alarm tickled my ear at dark-thirty.

Add a cairn to the path.
