On New Year's Eve, I was bound and determined to capture a photo of the Blue Moon rising over the mountains. I dragged out my tripod, and lenses, and was all set to shoot a good thirty minutes before I expected to see the moon. As it turns out, the moon was covered in cloud cover until later in the evening (when I was off partying.) I got some nice eerie shots of the moon lighting up the clouds and mountains, but not a fantastic Blue Moon shot.
It wasn't a total loss though. Sometimes the best photos end up being the ones you weren't expecting to take. While I was waiting for my Moon Rise I started snapping the sun setting.
To me, this photo says "winter" in the most beautiful way.
