Nice shot!

I was hoping to capture it a few days ago but the cloud cover was to high above the horizon. Got a few shots of the moon though Lets hope for some more clear skies in the next week or so

Don't worry Paul...should be visible for a few nights yet, very low in west right after sunset as soon as sky gets dark enough to glimpse first few stars breaking twilight...just look above the point where the Sun set with a pair of binoculars.
