The Venus-Pleiades conjunction was photographed on April 3, 2012 over a desert hillside. The silhouette of several saguaro cacti provides a pleasant backdrop to the setting of the pair on the Western horizon. The photo was taken with a Canon t2i and a 100 mm f/2.0 lens at f/3.5. (4 seconds @ ISO 800)
