Venus with two-day-old Moon

About this image

Beautiful view of Venus next to a two-day-old Moon this evening. This shot from my phone doesn't really do it justice - I didn't have a better camera to hand at the time.

With Mercury coming up to greatest elongation next week, I wondered whether I could get that in shot too, before realising it had already set!
