kden, and out of the 20 or so I took, the best one was the first!

Thanks, Christina.

Nice to see you, Pete, thanks and have a great weekend!

Jew Wishes, this was taken Friday night - too late for last week's entry.

A slightly different take on the sky, Babooshka!

Hilda said...

Simple and beautiful. I like it. Thank you.

Happy Sky Watching!

Judy said...

What a wonderful shot! I like that the moon is lying down, a rather unusual angle for it. And Venus adds another sparkle of light in the depths of the night sky!

Carol said...

Very beautiful! Also like your swan...

The moon just missed Venus and now Venus is bound to wander lonely until next time. Sad but funny.

VioletSky said...

Thanks for visiting Hilda.

Judy, yes, I thought it rather unusual, too.

Carol, thanks for looking down as well!

Chrome3D :) I miss it already.

Just wonderful! A rare photo.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Wow! I have not figured out how to take decent night shots.. This one is beautiful!!!

VioletSky said...

Michelle, hope you are feeling better. My blurs come with trying to get shots of birds!

One Red Horse, thanks for visiting, I was so glad I had my camera with me.

Thanks, Gwen. I took many, and in the end it was the first one that was the best. I must start keeping track of the settings I use.

So clear - a wonderful shot of the night sky. I also appreciate your Mellow Yellow pictures.
