Skywatch Friday: Winter Moon





I took these images in February when I was living up in Sutherland. The snow would last for months up there.

Have a happy SWF, you can check other participants of this meme at:

Sutherland sounds a bit like Canada. LOL Love the moon over the snow, even though we'll soon have months of it here. ;-)

When I first glanced at the photos, it almost looked like sand dunes. Lovely shots.

Hi. See that we have the same idea on today´s skywatch. Lovely moon shots :-)

Jane said...

Thanks everyone:), harvest moons are usually around October/November and are golden in colour I think. Yes I should imagine that Canada gets very cold in the winter, snow is so deadly (certainly for driving) yet it is fun and pretty. We were quite high up when we lived up there ( we are now too) but the nearest village used to be minus 10 some days -especially at night.

Yes I like seeing the moon during the day too.

I was thinking that was sand on the beach not snow. Fun to see I don't always know what I am seeing. Lovely moon photos!

Love these soft shots!
A daytime moon is one of my favorite sightings. You've captured this scene beautifully.
