15.5% New Moon — July 14th

This was 14 July 2018 at about 9:40PM. I used a tripod to keep the trees and the surface of the moon both in focus at f/6.3 without bumping up the ISO too high. The sunset was just fading and the range of pastels was very nice.

Camera: Nikon D810
Lens: Nikon 300mm f4
ISO 800    1/160 sec    f/6.3

    1. Thanks, Ilka. It was a pretty straight edit…
      it was stunning the next night with Venus right below the lower horn, but an hour later before being close to the trees, so too dark for the colors.
