Well, DG and I managed to escape out to the desert for a couple days (returning home tomorrow), and we were capturing a few photos as the sun was setting. The moon was very visible, even before sunset. Also, very cool looking because the crescent shape looks great out here in the desert sky. I googled "today's moon" and learned that today's sky is indeed special: "Be sure to head out after sunset to catch a close pairing of bright Venus and a thin waxing crescent moon in the western skies".
I was wondering what that bright spot below the moon was!!
|You gotta look hard, but almost directly below|
the crescent moon is Venus.
|Crescent moon and telephone lines.|
|This has nothing to do with the moon, but I like the shot. Used my|
telephoto and tripod for some nice pink desert sky!
|Late afternoon sun makes even mail boxes look interesting!|
|DG found an old frame during our wanderings. |
She wasn't in the mood to smile.
