EquipmentCanon 500D camera
DescriptionWhile walking along the coast of Worli in Mumbai I saw this beautiful crescent moon shining over the Haji Ali mosque and dargah in Mumbai! I had no tripod along with me and so it was very difficult to capture the moon without any shake! I am happy that I could get a clean and sharp photograph!
