Cold Winter Night
The temperature was in the mid teens when I started my trip back from the city today. I had some Christmas shopping to do and knew that the almost full moon would be rising right before 5 pm.
What I didn't anticipate on my trip up the shoreline was how clear the western sky would become as the temperature dropped to single digits. First it was seven degrees on the car thermometer, then four. This image of the Catholic church in Forestville was taken after moon rise with the sunrise glow illuminating the horizon.
The cold night made the outlines crisp and dark and lovely.
