This sliver of the crescent Moon was photographed during the early evening of January 30, 2006 from Rostronën, Bretagne, France. The Moon was only 27 hours old when I first detected it -- very young Moon. Later in the evening, when it was closer to the horizon, I decided to make a panorama with the town's "skyline" as a backdrop (shown above).

Photo details: Canon DSLR EOS 350D, Zuiko 200 mm (1:5.6) telelens, from 1/60 to 1.3 sec., 400 ASA.
