About this image

I made the most of the clear sky on the 6th and set up to capture Venus and Mercury but alas I forgot my wide angle lens and the camera plate for the tripod! Balancing my camera on the top of the tripod worked and I did mange to capture Mercury and the colours from the setting Sun.
