Venus, Jupiter and S. Peter in Rome: 28 June 2015
While waiting for their close conjunction next 30 June, we managed to capture a nice image of planets Venus and Jupiter, hanging above an amazing skyline. In fact, there is Saint Peter Dome well visible on the bottom.
This image was taken between Trinità dei Monti and Pincio, two very celebrated places of Rome. The image is self explanatory, as always when the beauty of nature is involved.
The image was captured with a Canon 7D mark II DSLR, with a 17-55-f/2.8 lens, using a focal length of 24mm and f-ratio of 4.0; the exposure time was 1/40s and all the setup was hold with hands.
