Crescent Moon

July 24, 2017 New Moon
July 24, 2017 New Moon

One of my favorite challenges is trying to take photos of the very new moon. The challenge in Western Washington is compounded by the frequent cloud cover. My view from my deck means that in order to avoid power lines and poles, I am limited to spring-summer-fall. Fortunately, that works for the weather.

This was July 24, 2017. The new moon was on the 23rd.

Camera: Nikon D810
Lens:   Nikon 300mm
ISO 400   1/60sec   f/8
