Vermont, United States
I knew it was weak, but t hadi rained all day and was forecast to be cloudy over night, so I didn't recharge it earlier in the day. As I was ready for bed, I looked out the window and beheld a full moon. Setting up the camera for some test shots of the full moon (I had researched camera setting several days before), I prepared for a long wait...until clouds rolled in, obscuring the moon once again. So I packed up the camera and went inside...only to behold out my window the moon, already partially in shadow, Out I went to set up once again, as the sky got hazy and ground fog began to develop. This time I waited it out and while the sky was not as clear as I would have liked, I did get to watch the eclipse, snapping multiple exposures. Just as the moon was emerging from the earth's umbra, and things looked like they were peaking...the battery died.

Northern Sikkim, India
North Sikkim road journeys are long but you come across so many waterfalls on the way. The hours spent on the road were the highlight of the trip. I don't think there is any other place with this high density of waterfalls.
This is because the drive to North Sikkim is all uphill and this is the east Himalayan region, where it either rains or there is melting snow coming from many hills, to form tributaries which further form local rivers like Lachen River and Lachung River, which further connects to Teesta River which further connects to the great Bharmaputra River.

Questa fotografia nella versione a colori riproduce Burlamacco e Ondina che sorridono."Sorrisi" perchè in questa foto ho voluto isolare i visi dei due personaggi per rendere più incisivo il loro sorriso. Burlamacco e Ondina sono le mascotte ufficiali del Carnevale di Viareggio ma qui ospiti del Carnevale di Gambettola.
Here we see Burlamacco and Ondina smiling. "Smiles" because in this photo I wanted to isolate the faces of the two characters to bring the attention to their smile. Burlamacco and Ondina have been the official mascots of the Viareggio Carnival since 1930. In this photo they are the guests of the Gambettola Carnival.
