    Venus Transits the Sun in Italy

    I wanted to share some photos I took this morning from Naples, Italy of Venus transiting the Sun. The first image is by far my favorite. When I look at this photo I see the sun taking the shape of an Eagle’s head, Venus playing the role of its eye, the surrounding clouds cradling it perfectly. Do you see it???
    All these were shot on my Nikon D800 and 28-300mm lens on a sea wall close to my house. The sun was so perfectly dimmed when it rose I didn't even need to use a filter. Enjoy the photos!!
