Father & Daughter
I needed some beautiful pictures of people observing for our astronomy club website, and it is always difficult to find people and get the perfect day. Today ended up clear as a bell, and I thought this is perfect - Amy is here! So I loaded up the car after dinner and the two of us went down to the little park by the beach, and set the telescope up, and I started shooting. For a few of them, I stepped in behind her with binoculars, and used the self timer on the camera. This is the result. I was hoping for a nice picture, but to me this is really stunning! Oh, and Amy wanted to see something interesting, so I showed her the planet Venus, setting in the west, and it was only half-illuminated, which was fun.
