Apr. 3, 2012
Location:
My driveway, De Soto, Kansas.
Details:
It was supposed to be raining this evening, but instead the sky began to clear at sunset, and the view of Venus - an eighth sister - among the Pleiades in binoculars, framed by branches bearing freshly opened Oak leaves, was nothing short of mind-blowing!! These images were made with a 135mm lens @ f/5.6, guided for 30 and 25 seconds respectively at ISO 200.
