Moon and Venus at Sunset, August 13th, 2021

August 13th, 2021, 8:22 p.m. local time

Earlier this week, I intentionally rerouted my evening walk so I could get a better perspective on both the Moon and Venus.  This picture is framed by a school and trees which begin to mark the residential area.  You can see that even with a spattering of clouds, the second and third-brightest objects in the sky were clearly visible.

I did more post-processing on this picture than I normally do, as I wanted to ensure Venus was properly shown relative to the darkening sky and Moon’s brightness.  A best-guess approximation, you may call it.
