Winter moon

For me, there's something about seeing the moon in a winter landscape that adds to the metaphorical chill of the setting.

Comparisons: The moon is barren, stark and cold. A measure of that bleakness is visited upon the earth in winter.

Contrasts: The earth will warm and regenerate with the coming of the spring. The moon will continue its journey in cold silence.
