This winter solstice, I was fortunate enough to capture the full cold moon in the unique location of Writing-on-Stone. This was a rare occurrence for the cold moon due to the moon rising on the exact day of the winter solstice. This phenomenon doesn't happen very often and in fact, won't happen again until the winter solstice of 2094!
On the way to Writing-on-Stone, I made a stop to photograph one of my favorite barns. Once we arrived, the temperature hovered around 6°C. Waiting for the moon, I wandered through the Hoodoos to capture the fading sunset over the Milk River. As I sat on the Hoodoos waiting for the moon to rise over the visitor center, the temperature required some hot pockets to keep me warm. Although I couldn't complain, there was no snow on the 21st of December! Not long after the sunset, the moon began to break the horizon for the perfect photo.
These photos were taken on December 21nd, 2018.
