Equipment Details:

Canon 5D Mark IV sigma 60-600 lens on a manfrotto tripod.

Post-processing Details:

I imported my pictures into Lightroom to tweak them. This one really didn't need any because the sun was just setting. The colors you see are how the camera took them.

Image Details:

I went out to my local spot to see the 98.9 almost full Hunters Moon. As the sun was setting the beautiful colors of the Belt of Venus which is an atmospheric phenomenon that can be seen shortly after and before sunset , during civil twilight. It is a pinkish glow that is above the grayish blue which is even cooler because that really is Earths shadow you can see it coming up opposite the sun setting.
