After a long and, no doubt, exhausting night of work, It appeared as if this beautiful, full moon settled in among the trees for a short rest. Of course, only for a moment before it eventually moved on.
I was out in the very cold, very early morning yesterday to photograph the moon as it set. I took this photo, standing by my garage door, looking to the west across the road, beyond the farm field to a stand of trees some distance away.
Tough to get this shot without a lot of digital noise. This one didn’t turn out too bad. At least, good enough to share.

The moon has been beautiful the last few days. I was finally able to capture a shot about 6:30 this morning as it was slowly slipping behind the trees. I was set up on my driveway, shooting across the farm field west of our home.
The moon was so bright, you can see where it melted the snow. (Of course, I’m just kidding.)
I was using my 300mm lens and had my Sony SLT-A55 on a tripod.
