Wow, that is so beautiful.

It looks so peaceful and serene, you really caught everything, the snow at night, the whispy clouds, the trees, the stars, like you could step into the photo..........just wow....

Very nice. You can see some of the stars in the sky as well.

Thanks very much for all the nice comments!

You should try to catch these planets while they are still together in the west. Each night there will be a little more moonlight as the moon grows in phase but moves farhter away in the sky toward the east from these planets. After the full moon, or a day after that (15 day old moon), the moon will not be in the sky until after the planets have set.

I really enjoy a moonlit winter scene.

happy trails :)

Thanks. I submitted an image but it didn't make the cut. It is a nice gallery to see.

Sapce weather is one of my morning reads with coffee everyday :)
