A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

The moon over the city

The Moon, Jupiter and Venus - click for larger image - taken by Bruce

The moon was amazing tonight – the photos do not really do it any justice at all. To the left is also the planet Jupiter and to the right is Venus – which are both visible in our night sky at the moment if you know where to look. Also visible in the larger image is the light of hope that shines out from the city. The first photo is taken by my partner Bruce with his Sony NEX5 – which proved to be a little more easy to work with than my Sony A200…

Another shot showing the colour of the sky - taken by me with my Sony A200 and a prime lens

    These photos are beautiful! I have shared my view of the moon over Wellington last night on my blog. http://www.niceties.co.nz/2012/03/crescent.html

    Thanks Alice, I checked out your pic – well done I really like the Wellington city scape with the moon.
