  3. Super shot, I have always had huge trouble getting one that I'm happy with. Did you use a telephoto lens with good length? Cheers, Jean.

  16. Was this Nikon or Cannon? Amazing shot, especially hand-held!! It also looks like orange, especially if look from the south polar region.

    Did you know for the last two days you could see Venus, Saturn, and Mars lined up at just about sundown in the western sky. It was raining and cloudy here... blick.
