Costa da Caparica, Almada - Portugal
Yesterday I went to the coast of my city, bathed by the Atlantic Ocean. I was very wind and many clouds in the sky. I went up the rocks on the beach of Costa da Caparica, in Almada, Portugal and tried to record the beautiful conjunction between the Moon, the Pleiades and the planet Mercury, one of his rare appearances. I took several photos with different exposures, in some images we can see the track of an airplane. In the Crescent Moon we also can se a strong Earthshine. Canon 400D ISO400 18mm F6.3 and exposures between 8" and 15".
