Moon and Venus

In mid-summer of 2018, the Moon and Venus put on a spectacular dance for about one week. I was busy setting up my telescope gear for a night of imaging when I took a moment to look up at the retreating light and saw these two lovers. I knew I had to snap a photo, but I was in the middle of a wheat field without a tripod! I braced my hands and arms against the car and held my breath in the stillness of the night. After several tries, I finally came away with this shot.
