Snow Moon

image by Göran Strand, Frösön, Sweden

Last night, I held a lecture to an art club here in Östersund. Right after that I went home and changed into some more active-wear to go out and photograph the full Moon. The full Moon in February is called Snow Moon. I wanted to catch it in a snowy environment, so me and my friend Mattias went out on Storsjöns snow-covered ice. We went out on the lake with a kicksled along a plowed road on the lake. To go on a kicksled during a dark night in the moonlight is powerful feeling, you can hear the ice sounds and feel the biting cold in the face. As a bonus, a light mist came in over the lake just as we arrived.
