On A tripod mounted Canon 400 f/5.6 + Canon 2.0 TC III,at .3 sec. exposure, f/16 I captured this "sliver" before it set off of Florida's SW coast.(2.11.13)
This is the beginning of a waxing Gibbous and means the moon will slowly regain its surface visbility until it is full.

Exif: F Number: 16, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 3/10 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 800, FocalLength: 800.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 7D

Perfect name for a perfect crescent moon, Wayne! Excellent work and wonderful in silvery B&W!

Deborah, thanks for your kind and generous words on "Cheshire Moon"! It was only available to shoot for about an hour. I just happened to spot it. And it vanished beyond the haze.
Warm regards,

Dear Photo Friend: I feel that something has changed at Better Photo but cannot tell you just what has happened. I have been here since 2003 and most every month I have written to all the winners telling them how their work touches me. I have witnessed photographs that bring tears to my eyes and colors that are unbelievable, now I am worried that like all good things that it will not be here the next time I look.
But the feeling of not being able to congratulate all the winners for the hard work, and sharing their talent with all of us makes me so sad.
However it turns out and even if this is the last time I have this privilege, to let you know how exceptional your work has been, please know that I will never forget.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of you for the month of March, 2013, I send my very best to you always, Merna Nobile
