Cherry Cove Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Brevard, NC

Equipment Details:

Nikon Z6, Nikkor Z24-70, ND .8 Grad filter to help darken the sky.

Post-processing Details:

Took the highlights down as it was so close to sunrise the horizon was too bright to see the Moon or Mercury otherwise.

Image Details:

I was doubtful I could get Venus, Mercury, and the Moon as it was so close to sunrise and the Moon is very small as it wanes towards new. I had to zoom in to the raw photo to find Mercury and the Moon. I labeled them in the picture.
