    The pale light of the dawn

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    The pale light of the dawn had been creeping on the horizon.

    Re: The pale light of the dawn

    We normally say 'The pale light of the dawn' and 'creeping over the horizon'.

    The past perfect is incorrect in a stand-alone simple sentence.
