Similar to two previous images taken a few minutes apart, but this photograph being a vertical composition that includes the incoming night sky and a couple of very faint stars. One star is just above and to the left of the oak tree.
I am in the middle of a hectic work schedule so I am publish variations of images I would normally select and use just one of.
