Featured above is a gorgeous twilight sky captured from a magical place: Mont-Saint-Michel (France). Because the Sun has already set, the tidal flats in the foreground take on a purple sheen. Note the waxing crescent Moon is at upper left-center. Venus, concealed by the glowing mid-level clouds, is barely visible to the lower right of the Moon. Photo taken on December 29, 2019.
