Venus partnered with a beautiful crescent moon in the early morning sky. It’s so rare to see stars in New York because of all the light pollution, but when they’re visible, it’s a gorgeous site. The blue, grey, and green undertones in the sky create a perfect canvas for this rare celestial scene. These subtle background tones will probably not show up in full details on a regular computer monitor, so be prepared to be surpassed (and very impressed) when you order this as a print. Taken with a Canon 5D Mark III and a Carl Zeiss 135mm Apo Sonnar manual focus lens at f/11 and a 5-second exposure on a tripod.
