The sunrise was not the most spectacular as far as color goes, but catching the Moon and Saturn was a treat! (Saturn is the little dot almost straight down from the Moon - about halfway between moon and mountain.)

Great depth of field. About 1,330,000,000 kilometers, more or less.

Seriously, a very striking shot. One of those "I wish that was mine" shots.

A very striking image: I wouldn't have known it was saturn without you telling me, but now that I know I'm impressed

Thanks for your comments!

I've one of those astronomy programs that shows the stars and their movements. I like to try to plan shots like this, but it's not very often that things line up like this. Well, I should say that when things line up like this, being in Oregon, it's not very often that the sky is clear enough to capture it! :-)

I think it's a great photo! Really like the strange cloud at the peak of the mountain. Well done..........thekman.

Thanks! I believe that is called a lenticular cloud. I don't know how common it is, but I have managed to get Mt. Hood sunrise shots on several different occasions with some form of lenticular clouds. As I recall, one morning there were about four of them one above the other. I'll have to find that one and post it. :-)

Love it! The Moon looks awesome but the interesting thing is, onceI spotted Saturn, every timeI look at the photo, it seems like my eyes are immediatelydrawn to that little tiny white dot between the clouds. Very cool!

Beautiful composition and colours. If only the dark mountain was a little less grainy, it would be perfect.

Nice catchall around, including the cloud. All I have ever seen of lenticular clouds have been in books and on the net. I understand they are more common in higher latitudes (higher than mine anyway)
