View Full Version : Young moon

Managed to finally get out again with my camera after a bit of a photo-hiatus! Captured Monday night 1.9 days after New Moon. This moon is 4% lit by the sun. The other 96% is lit by earthshine - light reflecting off the Earth back to the moon.

Nice. I like that the shot is minimal yet still has context. :thumbup:

I always liked shots that take a lot of thought, and minimalistic shots are sometimes the hardest, and this one is done very well Randitola.
