I have been wanting to see this for quite a while but the weather has not been favourable and cloudy conditions have been present over the past few weeks!!! What a beautiful sight is Venus in the early evening. I took the image using my Minolta Dimage 7 using the camera on full manual so I could still get the blackness of the sky in the image.
