More than ready to take shot

This particular Juniper, standing upright in the slanted slope, caught my eye. While composing a shot, I realized that the Andromeda Galaxy, aka M31, was shining above this handsome evergreen. Of course, it was! It was November! Super excited, once framing the conifer in the center with the painted rocks strewn all around it at the bottom and our neighboring galaxy at the top, I was more than ready to take the shot. Then, I gently pressed the remote shutter.
