A week ago today was the Venus Transit. What was the Venus Transit? It was when the planet Venus passed between the Sun and the Earth. The next Venus Transit will not take place until 2117.
Rob and I are
astrology astronomy geeks. Though he was out of town, the kids and I used Rob’s welding lenses to witness the celestial event. Just like I’ve used sunglasses to act as a filter for my camera, I thought I’d try using Rob’s welding lenses as a filter. My hope was to capture the event on film. To say I am thrilled with the results is an understatement. This picture is going down as one of my all time favorite shots.
Honestly, I can’t believe I took it. I look at the picture and think it is a professional shot. I’m good.
