    Both, I suppose? I saw this on FB the other day and was delighted to see the clarity of the juxtaposition, Cherry. Lucky you to have seen and captured this.

      I am so glad I had the opportunity to get a half decent photograph. I have been watching Venus in the sky for several months as I travelled home from work.

      The is it a star or planet comment is sort of an in joke between me and Mr C. Whenever I say look at that beautiful star he always immediately react with ‘it’s a planet’. He is technically correct but it rather spoils the moment of beauty in the sky ;-)

    Very nicely done. I always struggle with anything like this so I always appreciate the work of others.

      Thank you :-) I was quite pleased with these photos as I too struggle with this type of shot too. I found some settings on my secondary camera that get a half decent photo of the night sky and other night scenes.

    photographing the sky at night is no easy task!! if you have a smartphone you can download an app called night sky. it is so cool – you hold your phone up to the sky and it identifies everything – while playing some sky like music. it may have been .99 cents or maybe even free. i downloaded it a long time ago and use it often!!! it’s very fun if you are into looking up at night!!!!

      That sounds like a fun app, it would help me when I was trying to work out which stars and planets I am seeing. I have been watching Venus for weeks not knowing what it was until the last few days when newspaper articles have started to appear about its prominence in the night sky.

  4. I saw that bright star the other night…been snowy, rainy or cloudy here most nights…lovely capture.
