I've had a few good views of Mercury this week whilst riding home in the evening so I decided to take a camera with me today. Unfortunately the run of clear skies came to an end mid-afternoon and there was a lot of cloud and haze around at dusk. I did get to see Mercury tonight but this is a shot of the much brighter Venus reflected in the River Chelmer taken from Sandford Mill.
