Day after the full moon and what is lurking behind the sun?

Not feeling really motivated to get out and shoot the snow moon the last couple of nights. Sunday night was very impressive at moonrise but after a long day, I had no desire to go out. Last night on a whim Cailyn and I headed out to Pelican Lake near home to watch the moonrise. Mind you we still have over 3 FEET of ice and the opening day of baseball is April 12th here. Yikes!

Looks like something downright evil is lurking on the other side of the sun. A couple of impressive CME's have been hurled out in the last 24 hours. It will definitely be worth keeping a close eye on as whatever it is rotated to the earth facing side.

Anyhow, I didn't get the shot I was looking for as Cailyn and I were trying to make it look like she was holding the moon up out in the middle of the lake but here are a couple of the duds cropped one way or another. Shot with the D200 and the 70-200 f2.8 lens.
