    Default Moon & Venus



    A simple composition of our two closest neighbours... The Moon and Venus this evening.

    I couldn't help it, too nice not to take a picture of...

    Single shot, Nikon D60, ISO 100, 1/4 of a second at f/10, with 200mm zoom lens.

    Nice images Paul & Bob!

    Paul...I especially like how you had to work around those trees to get your shot!

    I would have liked to snap a photo or two of this pairing with my 300mm lens. But I can't view most of the planets from my backyard (because of all the tree lines), and I was to lazy to drive down the road to get a good view at it. At least I can see what I missed from our photo. Thanks for posting it!

    Hi Paul. A good capture of the crescent moon on one side of the tree branch, and Venus on the other side. Very nice composition in your image. Thanks for putting this capture on here for us to enjoy, and best of regards.
