The May Crescent Moon

I just got back in from taking some pictures of the crescent Moon.  This is one of the younger Moons I have photographed.  New Moon was at 5:11am May 24th and I took these pictures a little after 8:00pm on May 25th (all times MST, also known as Arizona time).  That makes the Moon about 39 hours past new.


Earthshine is very prominent tonight and the clouds made things more interesting as well.  I took another shot and got a little artsy.
