When visiting relatives in the countryside south of Abilene a few weeks ago I attempting to get some Milky Way shots on a moonless night. I noticed a glow to the east however at first I thought this was form the nearby town. A few minutes later I realized it was the moon rising. I took this shot of the moon reflecting the sun's glow, backlighting the trees in a dark, mysterious way.
