Black Moon Visits With Mars & Venus

 Venus and Mars have not been this close to the moon since 2008 and won't be again till 2017. That is what made me venture out for a few seconds in sub -30C weather! I use back button focus on my camera so that meant I had to actually take my warm & fuzzy mitt off for 3 seconds to focus. In that little time my fingers felt the burn of the cold. 3 snaps and I was out of there - not a perfect picture but good enough if one wants to avoid frost bite!

And because I know you have all been missing the girls...

The dogs seem to be taking winter in stride though! They are not getting much walking in these cold temperatures but they do have burst of energy rounding the backyard for a bit of fun. Got to love Kodee's yet again determined face wanting to catch Becky. Never is that going to happen! Becky is in such a relaxed loose gait with all 3 in the air. She is a natural athlete full of spunk.

Your amazing photo of the Moon, Venus and Mars puts Mum's dreadful effort to shame. I of course have been outside *sighing* over this view and dreaming of my Chester.
I wish Mum could take some of her dreadful photos of me romping in the snow like your fantastic pictures of Kodee and Becky, they look like they are having great fun, but I only got 87 flakes of snow and its just not the same!

Wow!! Our 6 years old and we all looked up the sky and we thought there were two bright dots near the Moon but weren't so sure. Thank you for sharing the amazing pictures, your girls' included.
