Hope everyone has had a Happy New Year's day; with family and friends, good food and good times! We have just relaxed all day watching TV, Mike.....I have been playing on the computer all day! :-)
I tried to get a shot of the "Blue Moon" last night but it was not to be.....it was so overcast and foggy that the sky was just a sooty black/grey. The snow was visible but the cameras didn't want to be very co-operative. I got the above shot of our pine tree in the side yard and it has some ice crystals on the branches that sparkled in the night. I couldn't even coax Gil and Pokey Pie to come to the fence and try to get a picture of them. They were having nothing to do with me, they were busy out foraging for what they could find on the hillside.
Tonight it is still overcast and snowing here and still no moon. How sad, I really wanted to get some pictures of this rare event, won't happen again until 2028....will I be here to get shots of the moon then? What kind of cameras will we have then; interesting to think of where technology will be then.
Tracey at Mustang Diaries set up a group on Flickr called Blue Moon New Year's Eve you can go there and check out the pictures of the moon that others got....some are stunning!
To all of my readers, have a safe, healthy and prosperous new year!
