Moon perch

20130419-171142.jpg
I managed to catch a shot of a crescent moon as it dropped behind the house next door. I like the way the moon appears to be perched on the terracotta swan neck finial. I was surprised by the number of stars in the picture, as the light noise from street lamps usually obscures them.

I was using A Sony NEX-5N camera with SCN selection set on night scene, zoom lens and a tripod.
