Solstice Moonrise


There was a huge, beautiful moon rising on my drive through Northern Idaho Friday, but alas, there was no way to stop until it had shrunk significantly. So it's become the image I missed, now stored only in my own memory. I have many like that, and I treasure them, too, even as I grieve that I'm the only one to ever see them.

But I like the one I actually captured, too.

I love your picture...it's really a perfect winter scene. And I've been feeling guilty about shooting, yet MORE of the same scene...such as last night's moon....which you'll see in the link below. merry Christmas!

Beautiful photo - but I can imagine how beautiful it was earlier too. There is something so magical about full moons - they rise over our lake like big orange suns - and then cast silver and white light over the water and turn my gardens into fairylands.
