Moon Sparkle

By cceccles
OK, I know the thumbnail is not very inviting, (thanks for looking!) but I couldn't resist uploading this. Yesterday we had a fall of powder snow, followed by a frigid night lit by the full moon, and when I looked outside, it was like someone had scattered jewels over the snow - the ice crystals were reflecting the moonlight. I don't think this really does it justice but it was an amazing view. Sometimes it feels like we live in an enchanted forest!

Sigma 28-200 at 28mm, ISO 400, 4.5 sec @ f/3.5.
