Taken near the Dalkeith Gunners Memorial (Perth, Western Australia) at around 5am local time using a Nikon D90 and Tamron 18-270mm lens, these three photos show the tight clustering of four morning planets - Venus, Jupiter, Mercury and Mars - on Wednesday 11th May 2011. While standing there in the cold morning air, the theme tune for "War of the Worlds" came to mind as I looked at Mars. That inspired the idea of pointing the cannon towards the red planet, which for centuries have conjured up the idea of war.
