2 Day Old Crescent Moon! was created by martinastro

I was out from 19.00 - 19.30 however by the time the snow stopped and the clouds moved to reveal a lovely clear sky Mercury had set behind trees and rooftops however the 2 day old crescent moon with earthshine was beautiful so i could not resist taking a few images. 3 sec exp/ISO100/ 2 sec timer/tripod mounted...











The clouds and snow have moved in again.

It sure is Mick. The Earthshine is gorgeous. Even my 4-year-old was impressed by it. Nice photos too Martin; well done.

Just the standard lens that comes with the camera with a little optical zoom.
