Mars will be soon at its closest to the Earth. Its brightness is increasing day after day. One week before the opposition (minimal distance to the Earth), Mars is a dazzling "star" above Spica, the main star of Virgo. In this photo, the planet is visible above the middle. In the foreground, the gorgeous landscape of the Virgin Island. On the far right, the Gibbous Moon and on the far left, some boats in front of the harbor of Morgat.
