    I saw the moon, the stars, the cross and had all kinds of ideas pop into my head, but I had 10 mins to shoot it. To me, the moon looked like horns, combine that with the cross which was angled towards it; then you had Antares, the brightest star of Scorpius to the upper right, and Mercury at the bottom left of the moon.
    I kind of find it interesting, any opinions?

    I like it, make me wonder why and where this cross is and for what reason, the moon acts like a nice touch for me. As for the stars... I can't tell if its stars or specks of dust on my work monitor
    Oh, I wish the ground was a little brighter.

    I wonder why the cross is there too.. :lol:

    There is a fairly large hill (1000') behind my condo complex and this cross sits on the top of it. Someone has obviously set up lighting for it (how I do not know)...

    It has been there for years though, and can be seen from miles away. I want to hike up and get some shots of it one day.
