How Much Like Venus...


...Jupiter looks. Except that it rises at sunset and is much harder to capture in the waning light, especially without a tripod.
Hand held look at the crescent moon.

We said hello to Jupiter today. That makes for a damn good day.

  10. You are doing a splendid job of capturing your night skies! So beautiful! Here in St. Pete we have more ambient urban light so seeing these photos reminds me of our beautiful mountain home and sky. Thanks.

    I love Bonsai.

  11. Methinks you're enjoying those CLEAR California skies night AND day MUCH more than the constant gray cloud cover you were used to near the Olympic Mtns......I know, they're both simply "different", but I find myself MISSING CLEARER skies....
