For me, a Crescent Moon adorn with it Earthshine is one of the most splendid thing I know. This one shines above a small hill, in a dark blue sky where some stars twinkle.
A few minutes ago, when my Canon 350D battery get empty, I was disappointed not to be able to capture this scene. To prolong its life, I had to heat it by putting it into my pants... close to my skin! Such a photograph needs this kind of sacrifice...
With this first photograph of the year, I wish you a year fills with Crescent Moon.
Let's have a look to the square version of that picture.
