As we enter the first day of 2016, I offer a set of photographs I captured with my iPhone 6 the night before Christmas just outside the Little Bitty here in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood.
Elisabeth and George Three had just arrived for our celebration, carrying in their arms full of presents.
While welcoming them, my dear wife Karen noticed the moon rising over our across-the-street neighbor Dawn’s house.
It looked full.
It looked beautiful, some 20 minutes past 4 p.m.
After capturing that image and making my way back inside through the side porch, I noticed the sun making its final retreat of the day off past the houses in the opposite direction, behind our backyard fence.
I think that scene, snapped less than a minute later, is so different in lighting but equally as lovely.
Which usually pulls you in more, rising moons or sunsets, and why? Can you share a story about your favorite full moon or sunset? Which photograph do you like better, and why?
