I went to "Jaame Abbasi mosque" which Ali Akbar Esfahani built 400 years ago to take these photos. Then I took another photo: Venus & the Moon above his statue!

Today it was a nice birthday present for me to have a short watch to the eclips of Venus by the moon. The weahter was very bad. But for some minutes the cloudes go away. It was a wonderfull view so see the bright venus near the small moon. I am very happy for this birthday present. Canon EOS 20D, 1/500 seconds, 4000 mm focus, 100 ASA Kind regards Günther Strauch

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to see Venus' immersion and emersion because of the clouds. But I can remember the strange view of that pale crescent with this bright dot near the Moon with the naked eyes.

Photo details: Canon 350D + Megrez 80/480 refractor on a tripod. 1/500 s at 100 ASA.
