Crescent Moon and Earthshine

A beautiful evening in the high desert of central Oregon!
The crescent Moon was hanging low in the west after sunset so I thought I would take two photos of it. The first is a standard shot with the exposure set for the sunlit side and the second set to show the light that is hitting the Moon that has bounced from the Sun, off our planet, off the Moon and back to us! This is visible with the "naked" eye and even with binoculars! Give it a try!

Comments or questions are always welcomed (well, as least nice ones)!
