Remember the partial lunar eclipse of 26 June? Well, I took the following photograph and posted it on Twitter, saying: “Looked for lunar eclipse in sky, but found it growing on bush.”
Half an hour later I got a message from the BBC’s Have Your Say department, asking for permission to publish it. Which they did, as the fifth image in this slideshow.
(Getting the moon to look like it was growing on the branch was unintentional — it was too dark to even see the branches. But it’s a lovely accident.)
[I originally published this as part of another blog post, but in a 2014 archive review have decided it merits a post of its own.]
