New Moon Setting
Posted by Avital Pinnick on April 15, 2010
It’s not as good a shot as I’d hoped to get but I did learn a lot about how to approach this kind of shot in the future. This photo required a lot of post-processing, so I’m very glad I shot it in RAW. You can see the shadow of the earth on the moon. This was taken during a brief window when the new moon was visible just after it cleared the clouds above the horizon. 7:44 p.m., ISO 400, f/5.6, 2″, 250mm.
