The conjunction of bright Venus with much dimmer Mars (to the left of Venus), with the waxing crescent Moon nearby, above the mountains of the Continental Divide at Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, on July 11, 2021.

Mars was very dim and showed up on camera but was not visible to the naked eye or even readily in binoculars.

This is a single shot with the 200mm Canon lens on the Canon EOS Ra, a red-sensitive camera that picks up more of the sunset reds in such twilight scenes.
