Winter Moonlight

One would never guess that this image was taken at almost midnight. The moon was full and although it kept dodging behind the clouds there was still enough for a 12 minute exposure to look like daylight. Was actually hoping that the light from Traverse City would cast an orange glow in the clouds - as it usually does in winter.

It did not actually feel too cold at first - it was about 16 degrees. But, eventually the fingers and nose started to feel a little nippy. Oh well, had to try it and although this may not be an award winner the light was just about right - moonlight that is.
