Shortly after the image of the Waxing Crescent Moon and Venus (see post below) occurred, I caught the full moon rising one evening just after the sunset. The haze and dust in the near-the-surface atmosphere causes the moon to be quite yellow and distortedly large like this. This image may not show it, but the moon is just a few degrees above the horizon, with a hill rising before it. Handheld in 35 degree weather with a slight breeze that dropped the wind chill down into the twenties. My hands were freezing!
