Skywatch Friday: Midwinter Night

I took these late one night in midwinter last year. We were passing through Athens, GA and stopped for coffee and a stroll around UGA North Campus and downtown.

I loved the mysterious quality of the night shots, full moon and streetlights glowing against wintry tree branches and scudding clouds.

It was a magical evening.

P.S.- I did not adjust the color or contrast in any of these shots- the odd green-golden (or reddish, in the last shot) quality is all from the streetlights.

I like the dark approach to the sky - a contrast to the numerous out there. Great job!
