Venus and Mars one day before conjunction, with the 2 day old crescent Moon

I decided to take my Nikon out last night (Feb 20th) to try to get a quick shot of the 2 day old (6% lit) Moon, Venus and Mars while they were rather close together. The actual Mars/Venus conjunction is actually tonight but considering that the weather wizards predict snow for our area....

I didn't have anything interesting in the foreground to add to it and it was so cold (teens) outside that I decided to just use my 300mm and get just the planets:
