I shot this at 4:13 PM . I am looking forward to photographing the full moon on December 22
called Cold Moon that also goes by "long nights moon" and "the moon before Yule."The sun was setting in the west when I shot this picture and the moon was looking brightly lit in a clear twilight blue sky. I posted a horizontal version of this earlier that I removed, as I like the vertical angle better (that I also photographed at the same time) for more accurate color in the sky.

Thank you JPG staff for featuring this in Best of December 2018. Very appreciated

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!

    Thank you for your congrats Lynn...I had planned on shooting the full moon on December 22
    also but I am thinking we either had a cloudy sky that night or may have forgot to do it with getting ready for Christmas. I am glad that I shot this phase of the moon however and will have to make a note to remind myself to capture the full moon on January 20th if the sky is clear.
