Winter Solstice 2016

The full moon looked very special tonight.

It is quite cold in Cape Town which makes it an excellent time for crystal clear skies. Moon photography is one of my favourites that I always return to. I never get tired of that beautiful orb.

Called the Strawberry Moon it got its name from native Americans who used this event which indicated the readiness of fruit for harvesting, e.g. strawberries…

This year the Strawberry moon coincides with Summer Solstice, but of course here in Southern Africa it is the Winter Solstice.
