Oct. 6, 2021. 7:30 PM. -- We had went to Raven's Nest to shoot the sunset light. There were a couple other photographers there waiting for dark to shoot the Milky Way because it happened to be the Dark of the Moon that evening. My wife encouraged me to stay and shoot the night sky. At first I was reluctant because neither of us were dressed for the cold. We decided to stay and was glad we did. Right at the end of the blue hour Venus shines bright low in the evening sky and it's light reflected in the water. Some Crepuscular Rays from the sun that had already sank below the horizon were lighting up layers of thin clouds at very high altitudes. The Milky Way is reflected in water and Jupiter shines bright in the upper left.

Ohmygoodness! The way the sunrise (I'm thinking sunrise rather than sunset) colors the star scene! Truly spectacular!
