About Today’s Photo:

I like the way the crescent moon hangs in the late afternoon sky as if it’s keeping tabs on the transition from day to nighttime. This shot is from a couple of days ago. This evening it will be in its first quarter—appearing to be half-full.

Panasonic Lumix GM5, Lumix 100-300mm lens @ 234mm, ISO 400, f/8, 1/250″ exposure.
