“We love the night and its quiet, and there is no night that we love so well as that on which the moon is coffined in clouds.”
― Fitz-James O’Brien, Classic Ghost Stories by Wilkie Collins, M.R. James, Charles Dickens and Others
Happy National Moon Day!
I admit I love photographing the moon. I may not do the best job. But there’s something about being outdoors at night that just connects me to the universe.
Everyone has been complaining about the cold here in Michigan. But honestly, it is Michigan. I admit there were a couple of days that had me hibernating indoors. A cozy fire, a warm blanket, and a good book made the days go by quickly. Other days, I would just watch the snow fall as I stood in the middle of my yard.
Michigan’s weather temperatures are slowly decreasing. Winter is here. Most people should understand the colder weather is a normal part of living in Michigan in December. I personally do not mind the colder weather. But the high winds make going outside difficult. Feeding the little Sparrows and other winter birds is a cold process. However, if I do not feed them daily, the birds sit on my porch. So every time, I walk by my sliding glass window, I see them peering in at me. Yes, I am convinced this is a guilt trip tactic.
Tonight, you can tell snow is on the way. There’s a heaviness in the air. According to the weatherman, the next couple of days should only bring about three inches of snow. So, if you are out and about in Mid-Michigan, drive safely.
Right now on social media, the 7 days black and white challenge is extremely popular. I finally decided to participate. So this is the first photo from last night. I am not a big still life photography person. I would rather be outdoors. But once in a while, a creative mood hits me to try something different.
