Shadows of snow meter and trees on snow are visible in light of Venus ! I took 2x30sec for lowest photo and 1x30 for upper photos each in composite. Exceptionally clear sky and good dark countryside sky made this possible. Other two tries unsucceeded. I was ill so I had to take photos inside house through window.
