A rare Christmas Day full moon was an invitation to capture its reflection at the Preserve early Friday morning. An overnight freeze added to the reason to go, as I really like shooting leaves fringed with ice.
There was a layer of clouds hiding the moon, but it appeared just a few minutes before hitting the horizon,and a few minutes before the sun came up. Great combination that I've photographed here three times now.
The fallen leaves and debris are still full of color and abstract design. Trying to get a perfect composition is the real challenge. I've emphasized the frost on a number of these shots using the Paint Daubs filter.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
