Winter Solstice Lunar Eclipse Pics

I just wanted to post several pics I took of the lunar eclipse last night.  High thin clouds obscured the view at times here, but got enough holes to see quite a bit.  The clouds started thickening up a bit more right about the time of maximum eclipse when the Moon was deepest inside Earth’s shadow.
