The Moon, Venus, And Glowing Fog over a Swiss Village

Landscape and architectural photographer David Kaplan captured this stunning photograph of the Moon and Venus rising above the village of Trübbach in Switzerland.

Sometimes a morning sky can be a combination of serene and surreal. Such a sky perhaps existed before sunrise this past Sunday as viewed from a snowy slope in eastern Switzerland. Quiet clouds blanket the above scene, lit from beneath by lights from the village of Trübbach. A snow covered mountain, Mittlerspitz, poses dramatically on the upper left, hovering over the small town of Balzers, Liechtenstein far below. Peaks from the Alps can be seen across the far right, just below the freshly rising Sun. Visible on the upper right are the crescent Moon and the bright planet Venus. Venus will remain in the morning sky all month, although it will likely not be found in such a photogenic setting. [#]

You can see this photo and others like it on Kaplan’s website and Flickr stream. NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day website has a large version of it too.

    that’s awesome looking. Wonder how close to reality that is. Might be dead on.

    I’ve been following his stream for some time now, his work is always amazing. I think a lot of his pictures are HDR but it is done very well in a tasteful manner.
