Oh my gosh, it was so beautiful!
I took these pics around 5am, 2/19/19, from my back patio.
Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Six almost identical pictures. Boring to say the least.
Thank you. I count my blessings every day and am so grateful.
Your constant displays of envy, ignorance, and pettiness, are more revealing than you are capable of comprehending.
Have a lovely day, Nina.
Every day is a lovely day.
cool pics, thanks for posting 7... all with different views of the moon and its reflection on the water... any decent photographer would immediately appreciate your work here.
They are beautiful pictures...........each one is unique.
It's what you and God make of it.
I wake every day, grateful for all God's blessings, and with a positive attitude.
Life is too short to do otherwise.
Thank you, @Days
It was so beautiful and peaceful. I have many more photos of the Snow Moon, but only posted a few.
That's my favorite time of the day...a little while before sunrise, when all is calm.
I'll add some sunset pics one of these days.
