The waxing crescent moon brought out a little photographer in everyone this past Sunday.

Martin Impey of Vernon captured the new moon in conjunction with the planet Venus, and the silhouette of the hill in what he called the “maid with the flowing hair”. His photo sparked interest up and down the valley of the moon in its waxing crescent phase.
