Crescent Moon and a Star

Leslie Gulch, Oregon

The astronomical charts had told me that this composition might appear, so I set my alarm clock for about 90 minutes prior to sunrise.  As the creeping sunrise obscured all but the crescent moon and one star (Venus, perhaps?), the undulating horizon line helped create a beautiful composition.  Photo © copyright by Stephen Penland.
