The Cold Moon

December's full moon is called the Cold Moon. It was highest at midnight and the brightest moon of the year.

That's a good name for it here in Coastal BC. We've had two weeks of zero and sub zero temperatures, and even a bit of snow.


The clouds parted just enough for me to get a shot of the Cold Moon.


The halo around the moon shows there are ice crystals in the atmosphere, ready to give us another dusting. -- Margy

    1. Thanks. It has been cold, but the woodstove keeps us plenty warm day and night. - Margy

  2. I like your "porch" shot. I've never been up the lake when it's snowed.

    1. It doesn't happen often, but I think a little more than in town. We have plenty of winter left to get some more. This year looks like it will be a good one for snow. - Margy
