Picture Perfect~~Cold

 
What does the moon have to do with cold?  Well, this picture was taken in Feb. of last year.  It was one of the coldest nights of the year.  It was also the lunar eclipse.  I had so much fun that night taking these shots.  LOL  I was shaking so much I didn't think any of them would turn out.
 
I haven't posted much on PP for a while now.  I really didn't think I would have anything for this one but, I remembered these shots.  Our weather here does get cold and we do have the occasional ice and snow storm, just not that often.
 
As for me, I'm ready for spring....

  7. I hear that it's very cold in space and so fits the theme in two ways...I do a lot of night photography and have been one several times at night during the winter so can identify with your writeup.

  11. Wow, what a great shot of the moon. It is such a difficult subject, unless you have a good telephoto lens and a sturdy tripod! You did great.

    You have so much talent with your camera - but it's not just the technical aspect of it all, your composition, ideas, everything you do makes it wonderful!

  26. This is special!
    We know that the moon for certain makes a difference here in winter, at least when its a ful moon. But capturing this was just great.
    I think several ppl are "ready for spring now".
    Thanks for the visit.

  27. I remember that night well.
    We shot at that moon together, even though we were 1000 miles apart.
    Then Holly posted that song.

    Somewhere, out there.........

    Sniffs.

  31. thanks very much for visiting mine, this is a different view of cold, would go really well with 'dark side of the moon'.... it actually does look very cold.
