The past mornings have been very cold (around mid-20s) in this part of the country at this time. Knowing the waning moon will be close to Venus, I want to take photos of both of them in cold clear sky at the time that the light from the rising sun is bright but not too bright to dim the Venus and the moon. However, this morning, there were some low hanging clouds. That actually add the vivid red colors to the photos even though I have to spot the right time that both Venus and the moon are not behind the clouds. I took several and this one come out to be the best.
