04.19.2020-2 Twilight Crescent

I couldn’t see the moon when leaving the house this morning so wasn’t planning to have it in a landscape.  I was heading to the location often visited nearby and turning the corner I saw the crescent hanging at a nice elevation floating over the trees and the rising sun was just warming the sky.

    It’s a lovely, peaceful image. Is that frost on the ground? It seems to have picked up the color of the sky.

    • Yes, it was frosty and where there were puddles there was ice. But the puddles were muddy and I didn’t feel compelled to photograph them. Part of the reflected color is enhanced by the dim light. This is a three part HDR and the brightest showed the frost a bit whiter.

    How fortunate you are to be able to be out and about so freely and so frequently, Our PM today announced a decision to lower our status from Level 4 to 3 next week, but any non-essential travel will still not be tolerated. A very nice reward for your pre-dawn drive.

    • Yes, I am fortunate. If our governor asked I would stay at home but he has encouraged responsible outdoor activities and my early hours make that all the more doable. Your PM is wonderful, even if the order is inconvenient, and I wish I could say the same for the guy running things nationally here. We are lucky to have a sensible governor in MA.


  10. Simply stunning, Steve. Perfection in a picture.

    I recognize that location – what a beauty that moon is. Crescent moons have an indescribable grace, don’t they? Beautiful image!
