Crescent Moon and Oaks, Santa Clara Valley

Posted by
Don Smith (California, United States) on 15 December 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

I swear I heard this little crescent moon talking yesterday after sunset. It said something like, "Hey, would you three big oaks like to hang out this evening? I'm not due to set for another couple of hours!" I thought I might have been crashing the party so I grabbed a couple quick frames and beat it out of there - wild times in the hills of southern Santa Clara Valley :-)

BTW - B&H Photo is running a $100 off special today on my favorite monitor calibration unit - the X-Rite i1Display Pro - would make a great early Christmas present - just saying!
