About this image

At this phase the disc of the Moon just fits on the full-frame sized sensor on the Eos 6D, though a little darkening of one of the cusps is possible if I'm not careful. Taken in the early morning twilight, a time when the air is usually very steady. The original image was just a tad underexposed so I did a bit of processing in Lightroom, after converting to monochrome.
