Yes, the last day of the year gave me more moon and venus conjunction in the cold night sky. I got out the tripod this evening but the wind was so strong it was still difficult to keep it motionless for a long exposure. However it was better than the technique I used yesterday: leaning on a street sign for support. It was fun taking the pictures with the tripod except that wind was very sharp. On my little Kodak camera yesterday I found a new feature that allows long night time exposures.
Tonight Keith is home safe and sound, new years has been ringing in for many hours around the world. We have just finished dinner and are getting our gifts ready to exchange with our sparkling ciders and some carrot cake.
Today, I enjoyed the Jib Jab animation of 2008 the year in review.
Hope you are all warm and cozy in your respective homes with your dear ones safe and sound.
Happy New Year from Washington DC, Keith and me.
