A Chilling Encounter, Part 1

Today’s post contains images shot last night in bone-chilling (7F) temperatures, near my rural Missouri home. With the year’s first Super Moon rising at sunset, I headed out to one of my favorite, nearby areas … Amarugia Conservation Area. I set up my equipment at the edge of the frozen lake and pointed it towards where I thought the moon would be rising. Within minutes of sunset, I could see the orangey Super Moon rising behind the trees, across the lake. Here are a few of my favorite images:

After shooting at this location, I then packed up and headed out for a couple more locations to shoot. I’ll share some of those images in followup posts.
