This photo was captured April 14th 2014. While everyone was waiting for the "Blood Moon," I was lucky enough to capture this beautiful sunset. The irony is that if I had waited to capture the shot of the moon, I would have missed out. The clouds started building around midnight, and while I could not see the moon itself, you could see the effects of the eclipse turn the skies dark and then back bright again. 

I know some of the photographers out there are probably wondering WTH was I thinking with that high ISO. Well... funny thing happened on the way to work that day.... lol. I was actually working on some night photography the night before, and forgot to check my ISO settings before I took the shot. It's a good thing I bracketed.
