A recent conjuction of Venus with Saturn combined with the brilliant shadow of Venus was a remarkable cellestial scene that moved me. The photograph was taken from a small island in the north Aegean sea in Greece called Agios Efstratios. The red line on the bottom of the image is drawn from a boat that passed by.
