Fri 10.09.15 – Yesterday morning we had a pre-dawn cloudy conjunction of the waning crescent moon with Venus, this morning’s pre-dawn show was the Moon in a triangle with Mars and Jupiter.

Fri. 09.11.15 – Due to the hot, humid, sub-tropical September (*evil*) weather we have been having here at Black Phoebe Central wherein it is nearly 80F by 7:45am, I have been taking the dogs out for their morning constitutional around 6am. This morning, Belle needed to go out for a pitstop about 10 minutes before 6am, as I was outside looking east into the first colorings of twilight dawning in the sky with a lovely waning crescent moon and Venus, I ran back inside to get my Nikon D800 to photograph the scene.
I liked the resultant photos but did not post them at Flickr or the Instragrams, until this afternoon when I wondered how converting the photo to black-and-white in Lightroom would improve the photo or not. I used the Lightroom B&W 5 preset with a few changes in exposure and was very happy.
I posted the B&W version to the Instagrams to as much fanfare as my IG stream every really produces and then wanted to show both photos side by side here to see what you all think. Click on the thumbnails for the medium and large views of the photos.
Do you prefer the colors of the pre-dawn sky or is the B&W version more intriguing to you?
Sun 08.22.10 – Scruffy, Belle and I met up with Donna at the Nokia Beach House and then we all trundled down to Dog Beach for another walk on the beach with all the various dogs in Huntington. It as a lot of fun and Donna met a lovely pug.
What more can one ask for?
