    While many around here were under their warm electric blankets, yours truly was out in the cold trying to take advantage of a clear predawn sky to shoot a 30% Waning Crescent Moon.

    3 hours later, the sunlight angle hitting the moon has changed...reflection is producing a more vertical image of the moon...sky is starting to show midnight blue color.

    I love a good moon shot. Trouble is I'm neither a night owl or a morning person. ;) Thankfully it gets dark here at 4PM in the afternoon or I would never see the darn thing
