The dreaded Monday morning meetings have moved to Wednesday, a slight improvement to the start of the week, but still too early for a true creature of the night as myself. This morning I arise extra early as I was determined to get there on time. When I glanced out if my front window I was fairly convinced it was still the previous night and today hasn't started yet. The crescent moon is so clear and (as I now know) and Venus so perfectly positioned. As early as it is I cannot resist trying to capture the moment. I was surprised to see a similar shot in the evening papers, so I wasn't the only one peering sleepily at the sky at that time.
