Among the best and the brightest by BenCoffman

This one’s from an early-morning jaunt to capture this scene at Lost Lake. Recent winds mean there were a lot of trees down in that area, which made the drive up (and even the walk in) take a little longer than normal.

Pictured are the planets Jupiter, Mars, and Venus (from top to bottom, over Mt Hood). The star just below Venus (the brightest object in this photo) is Spica.

Thanks for giving it a look!
