The winter moon

There is no doubt that the northern winter continues on at full strength, ignoring the cold and wind chill. The full moon rose last night well to the north of east, roughly opposite in the sky to where the sun is. The full moon will be precisely opposite the Sun on February 20th, just a month from now, as proven by a total lunar eclipse. I placed the camera directly on an east-west fence line; the moon is the white circle in the sky to the left.
