Californian earthshine

For those that don't know, sunlight is reflected off our planet onto the moon. Under the right conditions that light illuminates the part of the moon in shadow and it's called earthshine.

From my last day or so in California last month:

Moon, earthshine and Venus (and the hotel roof!).

Moon, Venus, hotel roof and trees. Again from the hotel.

From the hotel - Moon, earthshine and the Pleiades.
