I heard about the close encounter between Venus and the moon from your weekly bulletin so I packed my old and faithful 350D, my two 8 and 10 years assistants and went to the Laguna de Caracuel (Caracuel Lagoon) a tiny lake between Ciudad Real and Puertollano, were I live, in Spain. When coots and ducks retired, the waters became calm and the lagoon was a spectacular mirror. I hope you like it!
