The crescent moon rises above the Belt of Venus with Venus itself visible in the bottom right of the frame. The Belt of Venus is an atmospheric phenomenon and on this occasion was observed at sunset but it is also visible shortly before su or after sunset, during civil twilight. On a clear morning or evening it can be used to envelop a subject and provide interest. Because it only rises 10-20 degrees above the horizon it is not always possible to capture the moon within it so timing is key and on this occasion being able to fit Venus in to the frame was a nice added bonus.
