Moonsliver over Lyman Hill

This image shows a sliver of a moon (less than 48 hours after new Moon) over Lyman Hill, Skagit County, Washington State. There is no scientific value to this view, but the Moon plays a huge role, I speculate, in providing a sense of beauty to the night sky everywhere, even in sky-bright cities. Who can not look at a thin crescent and realize there is more to life than jobs, hecticness, and everydayness. The foreground is where we live, the distant ground is where we dream. Great evocative picture, Wade!

Technical Details:
Taken from my front yard the evening of July 30, 2003, using an Olympus c-730 ultra zoom at full zoom, and automatic exposure settings.
