New Moon, January, 2011
What feels like the dead of winter, Bay Area style.
That little sliver of a thing that looks like a bit of dust in the lower center of the image is the first New Moon of 2011 setting over Acalanes Ridge in Walnut Creek, CA, on 7 January 2011. Some Tule fog from the Delta is blowing over the ridge in the lower right quadrant, making sure it feels colder than the 38 degrees or so it is.. It's been quite foggy and dreary in the 'hood the past few days and fairly cold by local standards.
