Fancied a twilight shot of the old chapel but got there too late, so instead got a silhouette. Was a bit surprised by the extent of the flaring on Venus, but it is very bright at present.

Composed as it is to avoid the security lights from a nearby farm. To get a good shot you ideally need a young spring moon. Alas, I won't get one this year, given the announcement tonight.

Nice pic. You're allowed one session of outdoor exercise a day and I'm sure you won't bump into many other people at late twilight so social distancing is easier then anyway.

Tweak that focus. Feel that burn.
