Hazy Winter Moon with Venus, December 7, 2013

We've had clouds for at least 10 days in a row, including a storm with about 5 inches of snow - freaking crazy! When I saw the Moon with Venus peeking through the haze, I just had to go out on the balcony and snap some pics.

The haze actually makes Venus look much larger, so I'm pleased with how these simple photos turned out! It's so nice to have a snowy perch for photos so I don't have to trek out into the field full of frozen dog poop just to take something quick.
