Earth Shine - Sealers Cove - Wilsons Prom - Victoria by 

A simple, yet magical astronomical phenomina. When there is a very thin crecent moon, the earth reflecets enough light to illuminate the dark part of the moon just a little. This earth shine makes the grey disc of the moon visible along size the sliver of light. Add a deep purple sky and a bit of prom ridge line and I reckon you have a pretty amazing sight.

    Beautiful colour James. So simple and clear. The moon is a bit like that tonight actually (with a very bright Venus right next to it). :)
