Venus and Jupiter are slowly creeping closer together in the evening skies, converging to what promises to be a beautiful conjunction on June 30. Before that date, however, a waxing crescent Moon joined the show – and that was not to be missed. Thus I headed out to the lake where I was quickly surrounded by The Swarm, of mosquitos of course. Fortunately, as the Sun dropped down the temperature followed as well and the cold drove them off.
Opening a bottle of Heineken and lighting up a smoke, shooting some lame lake-sunset-thingies you’ve seen here many times before.
Slightly differently DOF-ed. At this point the swarming bloodsuckers were almost unbearable.
Now this one I like very much. On 500px I’ve titled it Nessie Snoring and I find that fitting.
Here come the night lights. You can just barely glimpse Jupiter, to the left of Venus.
I absolutely love astronomical reflections in the water.
This one is my favorite. Look at them, all fancy and footloose in the twilight. Also on 500px.
As a special bonus, once the cold nightfall scared the insecty vampires off, fireflies started hovering about. I didn’t manage to get them in the frame, though. And that orange color on the cloud bottoms? Those are the lights of Koprivnica, 15 kilometers away.
