Photo of Comet Ison contextualized in a Portuguese typical Alentejo landscape with a Holm Oak Tree as the earth element. I only see pictures of the comet Ison with the black background with no earth reference, I think we're all so excited about this comet that seems we are all sure of his safe passage through our mother star, the sun. This photo was taken with a simple 50mm lens, the comet appears quite small in the frame but as no one can guarantee that he will survive the sun Perihelion here is my visual record of his visit to our planet.
