Winter solstice moonrise over the Sangre de Cristo mountains, Colorado. Simple and subtle winter light. No great fanfare or flourish with a sunset, just the white spine of the southern Rocky Mountains highlighted by the almost full moon, that greeted us momentarily, before the clouds enveloped the rest of the sky. Happy solstice and thanks for looking. G

You rendered it perfectly Geraint. Question: Is there a full moon every winter solstice, or is this a special occurrence?
Thank you Rob. I think this article explains it. I just sold a nice print of the solstice full moon in 2010 to a couple in Arizona who got married that day. Thanks for your inspiration and support, Rob. Happy holidays and a happy New Year. G
