1.5 Day-old Moon, Venus and Mercury

Tucson, Arizona

*** Best view at original size ***

Catching the thin crescent of a 1.5 day-old Moon and Earthshine, along with Venus and Mercury (far right).
I was outside getting some stuff ready for a business trip when the thin crescent caught my eye, so I scrambled
to find my gear, dust it off (literally) and set up on my deck for a few shots before the clouds wiped out the scene.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

a delicate exposure perfectly realized...waxing crescent and Venus are easily recognizable, but did not realize that was Mercury too...applaud your awareness and skill...
