Earthshine is when sunlight reflected off the Earth's surface dimly illuminates the dark side of the moon and we've been experiencing some really good earthshine lately so I tried to take a picture from Mom's balcony tonight. Unfortunately I only had my 50mm lens with me, not ideal.

And here's the picture I took before I figured out I should probably narrow the aperture a bit! I think this was with the shutter open for about 5 seconds.  Almost all of these stars were invisible to the naked eye.

btw, I am playing around with the watermark feature. This one is obnoxiously large, sorry :P

I like the watermark. Cool pics Kim!! Love the one with the long exposure and the earth shine one too!
