Venus & Jupiter Sittin’ In A Tree
This week, for various astronomical reasons, Venus and Jupiter appear unusually close together in the western sky after sunset. This is known as a conjunction. While interesting and lovely, especially for astronomy enthusiasts, this does not necessarily lend itself to spectacular photography. On this one, I found myself more interested in how the sycamore tree looked in this several second exposure, illuminated by a light on the garage nearby. Yes, I would like to claim this is some intricately planned multi-flash operation, but no. Just a tree, illuminated by a garage light, along with two planets as the icing on the cake.
