Speaking of the moon...

Here is a shot from my trip to Ranch Venado (my folks place in the south Texas Hill Country) last February. Taken with the Nikon.

The "old moon" raises its hands to cradle the "new moon" (poetic, ain't it?) The sun is hitting only a small sliver of the moon, but the rest of the surface is illuminated by "Earthshine" -- light reflected from the earth.
