I would appreciate help idenifying this cluster in Lone Pine CA sky

This photo was made Sept 27, 2007 early in the evening (not near dawn) on Movie Road at the big right hand turn. The cluster was close to North (about 10-15 degrees and the moon was a little below the east @ 100-105 degrees. The moon made the mountains to the west glow.

As much as I can tell, the cluster could be Pleiades but I'm a rank amateur.

Thanks for your input.

The cluster is near the right edge and near the top.

This is what the mountains toward Mt Whitney looked like.

Sorry the stars don't show up better. I don't know how to attach the actual photo.
