Hello to all moon-chaser...
with a windchill factor of - 100° celsius and a sharp sibirian cold wind from the east (partly about 30 km/h) and after an oversleeped occultation of aldebaran i went to a
difficult area of sketching, montes apeninnus...a real minefield. So much details and sharp shadows of the monutainstops. The mine of my black pencil always breaks,
so it was nearly unpossible to sketch the fine peaks in the right way. Here is potential to do it better...
The air was very dry (only about 39% air moisture), but it was bitterly cold, i thought, my fingers broken. After 70 minutes i was be bushed and chilled to the bone.
