Wolf Moon: The First Full Moon of the Year

Last night was the first full moon of the new year, this is also called a wolf moon. Had no idea until yesterday. It was so bright out at night that I captured these shots with the lens open a bit longer, but not as long as one would think. It was that bright! The first photo was taken from inside the barn looking out the back doors. Later that night I saw a fox run through the pasture, again it was that bright. He was not wearing a suit nor was he standing on his hind legs like Fantastic Mr. Fox. I can't imagine that he wasn't cold!
The lack of cloud cover has made for the coldest temps of the year so far-battling freezing water buckets in the barn. Oh, oh yea, by the way Wilco is now in the house! More on that to come...

Love these photo's, the beauty in a moonlite night, with the shadows that come along with it, the sky, the color I'll call a midnight blue and that might be a color for a 56 Chevy if a still had one?

Love Dad
