My old stomping grounds, Painted Hills in Ore. Top image is sunrise and bottom the previous night when the skies cleared for the stars. I love this star image because it captures not only Venus in all its glory, but the sky’s brightest star Sirius (low left peeking out), Orion & Taurus, plus the Pleides.  Mercury is also visible but here is behind the cloud near the horizon.  A gorgeous night sky.  I’ve been having some weather, which has kept me hanging around waiting for that perfect clearing sky at sunset.  Sunrise is difficult since the atmosphere typically settles down and the sky clears during the night.
