The planet Mercury is making a nice appearance just after sunset. I captured it (very small, just above the clouds) and the moon on Feb 12th. Canon T3i, iso 100, 5sec @f4.0 with an exposure compensation of +2.33. 18 to 55mm lens @ 27mm.

That is a beautiful picture, Terry. Those colors are so peaceful and Mercury is very visible. Almost floating on those clouds. :)

This is one incredible picture.

I am very impressed with the range of colours I the sky moving from bottom to top of the picture.

Well done.

I'm with dolphinee...the range from midnight blue/black, to the last warmth of the day creeping over the darkening earth is just brilliant. Well done
