Moonset & Gemini

With the Winter Circle reduced now to just an arch — Sirius, Rigel, and Aldebaran are setting before the Sun cools its heels — here’s a photo of last night’s waxing crescent moon setting over the hills across the river. The two stars in the upper middle are Castor and Pollux, the twins of Gemini. This is a 15-second exposure at ISO400 and f/3.5 with my tiny, pocket-sized Canon Powershot.IMG_2926
