Crescent Moon and a Purple Fog Sunset
This past July, we enjoyed some great weather while camping out for a weekend up in New York state. The days were nice and warm, and the nights cooled off enough to make you not want to leave the warmth of the nightly bonfire. One evening, we were treated to a pretty sunset of oranges and purples that included a crescent moon. As the sun went down, a strong temperature inversion created a mass of heavy, damp air in the valley of our campground, allowing me to capture the photo above of the sky, moon, and fog behind a silhouetted tree in the foreground.
