Astrophotographer Göran Strand captured this beautiful shot on November 11, 2014, in the early morning. It features the silhouette of bronze statue in Östersund, Sweden – titled Father and Son – made by artist Olof Ahlberg in 1917. The moon was in a waning gibbous phase that morning, as it was in this morning’s sky.

Camera: Nikon D800E. Lens: Nikon 24-70mm/f2.8. Focal length: 48mm/f4.0. Exposure time: 1/90 sec. ISO 100

Thank you, Göran!
