Venus - Moon - Jupiter Rising

I posted this earlier but at the time I did not realize I had downsized the image way to much, so Wolfgang, here is the full version, thank you for pointing this out to me, I shall not do that again.

I shot 19 images but this one was the keeper. The temperature was 16 degrees F (-8.8 C) at 5: 37 am on the 31st of January, 2019. I was lucky I had clear skies to capture this image.

I hope you enjoy my revised image.
