While out on a recent pre-dawn walk, I saw this bright light in the eastern sky.

It wasn’t an airplane because I stopped and watched it for several minutes and I couldn’t see that it was moving. It seemed too big to be a star. I wondered if it might be a satellite or maybe a planet.

Regardless of what the light was, I was happy to be able to frame it with the palm branches. I didn’t have any lenses with me, so just used my camera’s native 2x zoom and hoped for the best.

The original (below) seemed a bit flat so I tried some different effects in Snapseed and also used my native photos editing app after the Snapseed edits.

I usually don’t do this much post processing. Today is a cool and rainy day though, so my plan is to continue to sort through photos and find a few more to practice and play with.
