The Moon, The Sphinx and Mars

October 4, 2018

           As I recently watched the First Man science fiction drama, I started thinking what it meant for humankind that landing and the meaning of this achievement today. I started seeing all those missed opportunities that we as a species lose today,  just by being not to excited of something great.  We lost the possibility of being happy about something greater than us and if you think very closely you will see that there aren’t so many things that still make us get up from a chair and say: AMAZING!

                Lunar eclipses can be observable from everywhere on the night side of the Earth, if the sky is clear, so I am thankful for the clear sky that allowed me to see it together: The Moon, The Sphinx and Mars.

        I was amazed by the opportunity that I had in photographing the total moon eclipse on the 27th of July 2018 in suchlike conditions. I am grateful for the good friends driving me in the middle of the night up there and I am grateful and amazed by the astonishing develop of the gear that I am currently using and that allowed me to capture a glimpse of this event. Amazed is although an understatement for that view, for the Bucegi Mountains and for the Sphinx.

Game Review
From that moment I knew. That feeling of believing something is great, was transforming into a certainty that this sport is truly great.
The Moment
Life is full of moments that deserve to be captured.
