Venus meets Jupiter in the evening

Jupiter and Venus were closest the evening of June 30, but this photographer’s location had cloudy skies predicted for it. He chose to go out one day early and capture the two planets in a clear sky from the shore of Georgian Bay. (Canon 6D DSLR, Canon EF24–105mm f/4L IS USM lens set at 47mm and f/9, ISO 400, 3.2-second exposure, taken June 29, 2015, at 10:05 p.m. EDT, from Big Bay, Ontario, Canada)
