Crescent Moon

Leslie Gulch, Oregon

As I set out for a morning of photography in eastern Oregon, a very thin crescent moon was rising just ahead of the sun.  I composed this so that the moon appeared adjacent to a rock cliff.  At first glance, it may be difficult to figure out this yin-yang composition, but that's a large part of its appeal to me.  Photo © copyright by Stephen Penland.
