Earthshine on the Waxing Moon

Earthshine on the Waxing Moon

The Waxing Moon (Crescent Moon) and Earthshine. Taken just after sunset, exposed for the Earthshine(light reflected from earth) which is normally very faint to the human eye. I set the Canon 5D Mark III to ISO 2000 with a one half second exposure. I set the Canon 300mmL f2.8(with a 1.4X Extender) to f4.5 and selected live view for critical focus. The camera was mounted on a Wimberley tripod head and triggered with a Canon remote shutter release. I cropped the photo tight for web viewing.
