I never pass up an opportunity to photograph the moon when it has a ring around it. I saw this ring last night so I grabbed a camera and strolled out into the neighborhood to find a good vantage point to shoot it. I don’t know why, but ever since I was a child I was fascinated with the phenomenon of lunar halos and now I’m happy that I have the means to capture their special beauty and share.

Holiday Halo

As you can see from my recent postings I’ve been turning my camera to the night skies a lot recently. Christmas Eve was no exception, I came home from visiting with family and as I walked across my front yard I looked up and saw this wonderful halo around the moon. I have a portfolio of moon halo images that I’ve made over the years and this is another nice one for me to add to my collection.

Lunar Halo

I always seem to have good luck with respect to photographing moon rings when I spend time in the wilderness. This one was visible in varying intensities for about 2 hours one evening. I trekked about in the dark woods with a tripod during that time looking for different perspectives while listening to the owls and coyotes around me.
