As we've done in the past I walked my sister's dog this 1st of December evening in the full moonlight. I shot the photo above at twilight just before the sky turned black and as it was just starting to rise in the sky! The night was clear and she sure was a beauty to behold!
The moon in December is called the Full Cold Moon, when the nights are the longest and darkest! Decembers moon is also called the Full Long Nights Moon meaning the moon appears in the sky for a long period of time.
Since darkness arrives so early, we often walk in the dark. Tonight the farmfields were lit by the glow, and the moon provided much light to the back roads we walk on.
Hunters have been out in full force here the past two days scouring the woods for deer hunting. Many deer have met their fate on our local roads especially in the last month.
The holiday spirit is coming alive with folks putting out their Christmas displays and lights over Thanksgiving weekend! The brisk air makes me feel like Winter is fast approaching! A full moon can bring out the romantic in anyone!
