An abstract with the moon

The crescent moon on my daughter’s birthday in January was beautiful.  Here I framed it between the silhouettes of the trees along the forest in Redwood Meadows. During the exposure (0.8 seconds) I moved the camera slightly to play with the elements and see what would trace across the image.  This one had an interesting look of motion in it.

We started our stay in Mexico with a new moon, a week later this thin crescent met us on our last night.  I love the deep shadows cast by her craters when the moon has just started waxing.
