To Me This Says “Winter”

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.

    Much better than a moon shot. A moon is a moon is a moon.

    I like it! I spent an hour last evening sitting on a mountain watching the sky, waiting for just the right combination of color and light. I’m going to e-mail a couple of the pics to you but in the meantime there are a few on my blog I posted last night. (I’m a shameless plugger)http://uncommondenominators.blogspot.com/Thank you for sharing Suzanne, You definitely have an eye for composition. Stephen

    Oh, that’s a great shot of winter in SoCal. We looked for the blue moon too, but never did see it because of so much cloud cover. I’ll assume it was there and take away that the blue moon portends good things.
    Happy 2010!
