Graben, Bavaria, Germany
While the Moon and Jupiter were easy targets (right picture) getting Venus into view was quite challenging in the hazy glow of the rising sun on a beautiful Bavarian morning(left picture). Neither Mars nor Mercury became visible. Jupiter and Venus were about 10 degrees from the moon. Canon 30D, 100 ASA, .5s exposure with 100mm zoom.
