Venus, the Crescent Moon and Mars

Venus, the crescent Moon and Mars at 40 minutes after sunset in Adelaide (click to embiggen to see Mars) Same group but 50 minutes after sunset. Canon IXUS 400 ASA, 1 second exposure. Click to embiggen.

After a spate of bad weather I finally got to image Venus again, the first time in nearly two months! Venus is low in the twight, but still readily visible if you have the ocean as your horizon. The sunset colurs were fantastic, and I have used to shots to try and capture the range of colours and the Moonlight on the water, as well as Earthshine. I should have lugged my telescope up to see crescent Venus, but the heat was too great.
