Equipment Details:

Nikon D750, Nikkor 28-300mm at 300mm zoom.

Post-processing Details:

Minimal, added shadows to bring up foreground, a bit of dehaze to help give a hint of the moon's outline.

Image Details:

A nice new moon invited me out to try and capture it. The sky cooperated with a bit of orange glow but enough clarity to see the crescent and the outline of the moon against the early evening sky. The peak just to the left of the moon is about 10.5 miles, just to the south of due west.
