There is a 3-D effect that is stunning with the snow twinkling in the light and then the tree standing there so stark and then there's even more - the moon! #411700

Thank you all for your kind comments. Being very busy at the moment - I have become grandpa on Jan. 13th, my daughter paying a visit with my grandson Jacob - I decided to get up early and take the time for some shots - it was VERY cold, but truly a photographer's morn. #411875

Gary H. Minish level-deluxe March 07, 2004

Congratulations, Grandpa! On both the new grandson and this photo :-) Great moon shot! In January, here, this kind of light wouldn't exactly be 'early'. It would happen around 10:00 AM :-) #412721
