queens crescent

Zeiss 50mm f2 Makro Planar manual focus lens

Crisp, clear black and white photograph of a lovely crescent moon over Queens taken in the middle of the night with a very long 25 second exposure. If you look closely, you can spot Venus in the top right corner, and if you look even more closely, you can see the slight celestial motion that the long exposure captured. Venus is not a distinct spot of light, but rather a small dash, and the moon is not a thin well-defined crescent, but rather a thicker version of itself. It’s amazing that there was enough motion of the sky during the 25 seconds that the camera shutter was open, but it’s there, and it’s beautiful. Taken with a Zeiss 50mm f2 Makro Planar manual focus lens.
