These photos are of a different four-planet conjunction back in August 2010. I found them while organising my photos and realised I hadn’t posted them here on my blog.
The first set was taken on the 7th August at The Entrance, NSW. It was the preparation shoot for the week after, when the Crescent Moon would be joining them. I had posted my sunset photos from the same day here, Sunset at The Entrance, August 2010.
In these photos, Venus is the bright one, Mars is at top, Saturn to the right, and Mercury is the lowest one.
The week after, the Crescent Moon joined the show. It was a terribly cold and windy night and I was never really happy with these shots, which is probably why I never posted them. They’re noisy and just didn’t capture the scene how I imagined.
Taken with the Canon 40D and Sigma 17-70mm lens. The 24-105mm just couldn’t fit enough foreground and sky in.
Thanks for looking.
