Winter Moon

This is the view from my front porch - early one chilly morning last month as I stood shivering in my pyjamas while I waited for the dogs.  I could see the pale winter moon through the bare branches as it set behind Mt Kembla, and the air was crisp and sharp as ice crystals.  The scene was so evocative of winter for me that I dashed inside & grabbed my camera.  

It was a pretty ordinary photograph (I was only just awake) but it inspired me to do this water colour as well as my winter image for my latest contemporary techniques series.  You just never know where or when inspiration will strike.
