A submission to this week’s photo challenge : Focus.
Taking photos of the night sky is difficult – my Canon EOS 70D needed a lot of tweaking to get something and in truth my inexperience got less than focused shots of the sky on that occasion. It was however, too good an opportunity to miss the close conjunction of Venus and Mars back in the summer of 2015, given that we were staying at Mango Drift on Likoma Island, Malawi – slap bang in the middle of Lake Malawi / Nyassa and under Dark Skies with as little light pollution as you are likely to get. The dots on the horizon are the local fishing boats out for their midnight catch.
The overall lack of focus here does add to the image as does the ‘Venus Light’ on the water.
A month or so later under Mwanza skies I managed a photo of the Blood Moon in September.
