A Beautiful February Night

I love being outside at night.  Especially on nights that are lit by the light of a half-moon or quarter-moon.  The illumination provided by the moonlight helps light things up so you can see, yet the moonlight is not so powerful that it washes out the view of the stars.  It sure makes for some nice photos too.  I was out recently on just such a night and found this nice stand of trees that was illuminated from behind by the moon.  There was also the slightest glow of northern lights visible behind the trees on the right side of the photo.  If you haven't spent time in the woods on a night like this, I urge you to do so.  It's an experience you'll never forget!
