Venus Rising

At the Flamingo amphitheater in Everglades National Park, one of the darker places in South Florida. This was supposed to be the peak night to watch the Orionid meteor shower. After a few hours of spotty success photographing meteors, the planet Venus, rising about an hour before dawn, marked the beginning of the transition from night to day.
