Crescent Moon, Ballingeary, Co. Cork
One of the advantages of living in a remote area is that often you don't need to go much further than your front door to get some wonderful images. I was working on some projects in my home office when I looked out the window as the sun was setting. A beautiful crescent moon was low in the western sky, so I grabbed my tripod and camera and went outside. The wonderfully subtle tones in the sky and the gradual transition from bright to dark, combined with the fact that the dark side of the moon is visible (due to earthshine) make this an image I'm very happy with.
