Weikersheim, Germany

The Full Moon over winter landscape of southern Germany, near the time of Moon's perigee (closest orbital distance to the Earth, about 360,000 km). As noted by the photographer "It was a pretty cold winter morning, about -17 C, while the Full Moon was setting behind the Weikersheim observatory." Jens Hackmann
