Venus and the Moon at Dawn

I just got a Canon 60D and so I had a little extra motivation to get up this morning to photograph Venus and the Moon (that and I am trying to shift my sleeping schedule for the Disney Marathon Sunday). I am glad I did. They were a lovely pair this morning and I was happy to take my first astrophotos with a new camera.

Venus is nearing the end of its morning appearance and will be passing behind the Sun on March 28th and moving into the evening sky a few weeks after that. So early risers should enjoy Venus now before it gets too low to observe.
