Not quite the sunset that I usually post

This is a shot of the night sky last evening. I think that it is The Moon (certainly 🙂 and Venus. tell me if I am wrong. This took a bit of juggling with camera settings.

Just to show you how much fun this is – here is the shot taken by the camera on automatic!

You see what I mean about fun. The shutter speed was too long – hence the camera shake – and the exposure was all out – hence the spread of light, which you certainly couldn’t see with the human eye. Sometimes these modern cameras are too clever for their own good!
