On the way home the moon visibly travelled down towards the horizon.  The dark winter clouds and the cold blue sky set it beautifully.  When we got home it was so close to moonset that I had to attempt to capture it.  It was my first attempt to capture such a sight with a compact digital camera and a pair of binoculars.

EDIT..

I played about with the brigtness a little to see the earth-light a little better.  This is the sun’s light reflecting off the earth and lighting up the moon.
