A full moon last night, Ö well, actually it was at 98% full. I canít tell. Anyway I headed up to Horestooth Reservoir and setup on the dam for an attempt at the moonrise last night. About a half hour before I left the wind picked. Dang it! So, I pulled on my ski bibs and discovered they had shrunk around the waist while hanging in my closet for the past 3 years. Embarrassing. With a bit of wiggling I got them on but couldnít button them. Now Iím laughing at myself. It had warmed up to 28 degrees but with the wind it was colder. I shot for maybe 15 minutes, and that was enough cold for me. By the time I got back in the car my toes and fingers ached, my nose was running, the tight ski pants were uncomfortable and did not keep the wind out. And, with the wind blowing it was difficult to get a sharp image. I liked this one the best and thatís what counts. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Time for some new ski pants perhaps? This is a lovely shot - well worth the chilliness.

We suffer for our art, don't we? ;) I love the tiny twinkles at the bottom.

Well, despite all the road bumps....this is a good shot. Yeah, I find it hard to button up stuff. Now, get inside and keep warm!
