Lunar eclipse at moonset

We’ve had an inch-and-a-half of rain over the last 2 days, and when I got up at 4:30 to check the sky, we were still socked in.  Went back to bed, woke up a little after 6, and I’ll be darned if the clouds hadn’t cleared out and offered a beautiful view of the earth’s shadow just beginning to take a bite of moon.  The photo below is about as deep as the eclipse got for me.
