100x: The 2015 Edition - 001 - Waxing Gibbous Moon

The first day of the new year in the Boston area was a sunny and cold one but those clear blue skies overhead meant that the moon's Waxing Gibbous phase was clearly visible.

I immediately grabbed by P&S superzoom and took some shots but sadly they were very lacking detail and focus so I turned to my reliable Pentax K200d attaching my Sigma 70-300mm zoom and extending it fully to 300mm. Resting myself against a fence post the following was the result.

Moon over Boston - 001 of 100. 

Taken handheld resting against a fence post with my Pentax zoom lens fully extended to 300mm. Taken in the Boston suburbs at 4pm January 1st 2015, cropped in post. The original out of the camera image that I had taken before cropping unfortunately showed overhead cable and phone wires which were very distracting.
