The moon this time of year is always special because it sets in the extreme northwest. In the winter, the moon sets over the Rincon area mountains instead of "into" the ocean, like the sun does when it sets this time of year. Now that we have a second story, I can watch the moonset when I get up in the morning. I took these pictures on the morning of January 11th.
This weekend, I took these pictures while we walked to and from my birthday dinner at Tokyo Wako in Arcadia. Just like it doesn't normally rain on my birthday, it doesn't rain when there is a full moon.
