Sunrise Trailing Crescent Moonrise


The moon was no longer visible within minutes of taking this photo.  This is really my favorite phase of the moon, and my favorite time of day to photograph it when conditions line up.  I took this photo from one of my favorite places, a park along the Grand River in Michigan, minutes from where I work.  I stop by here frequently before heading into the office.
