The Visual West - Image 3


I can't seem to sleep; I'm fighting a cold which makes breathing a conscious endeavor, but I think the real cause of my insomnia is the full moon. With a reflective boost from the January snow cover, our dark little corner of rural Colorado glows like a mall parking lot in the center of Denver, though with a lot more beauty.  I took this shot of the moon - and an icy ring around it - using a tripod and a telephoto lens.
