Moon - 24.3.2015 at 21.00 Oulu Observation number 36127

Visibility III / V

As I drove home yesterday, I saw that Venus and the moon were close together so I decided to quickly dig out the camera. There were no wedding group photos, but the sickle was clearly visible and also the rest of the moon. A bit challenging to shoot due to the delicate blizzard of a sickle, but by magically shaping the "shadow" out. Also, that Canon putty 55-250 may not be the best for the job, so far the only tele, so I prefer a worse picture than not at all.
