NW Coast of Scotland overlooking Isle of Skye.
Details:
I took this on the early evening of the 29th November just a day before maximum conjunction of Jupiter and Venus. A good thing as it is snowing heavy now (30th) so I would probably have been unlucky... The visual impact of the reflection of Venus on the sea was quite staggering. The two planets looked like headlamps in the sky. Taken with... Nikon D40, 18 secs, f4.5 , shutter time aperture controlled.
