What a catastrophic summer.. Since May I have not been able to do astrophotography due to super annoying weather here in Germany. The rare clear nights typically happened during full moon or I had no time at all.
This is my only astro-like photo in a long time, taken on a beach of Mallorca during vacation two weeks ago. I went to the beach for landscape photograpy before sunrise. At location, I noticed the very bright Venus rising in the sky! It matched nicely with the ongoing dawn!
