After a freezing cold snowy icy December, January has been a little bit warmer with a few sunny days that were a bit like Spring! It’s gone back to being cold and icy now though. It’s cold to go out, and sometimes it’s slippery underfoot, but it can look very beautiful when it’s frosty or foggy.
The other advantage to the cold weather is that it often means clear skies, so that I get a chance to take photos of the Moon. I’ve managed to capture it quite a few times this month so far, and it’s only just half way through it’s journey from new Moon through it’s first quarter, full Moon, second quarter and back to new again.
This photo was taken on the evening before the Moon was full.
