Transit of Venus

Similar to January 2011’s solar eclipse the spectacle had already begun when the sun was risen in our area on June 6th this year. Since I have heard about that, the goal was again to capture the rising sun with Venus in front of it. So I set the alarm clock to 4.45am, had a look outside on a clear sky and went up the hill behind the house. 20 Minutes later the sun climbed over the Ettersberg and Venus was visible as a small black dot. Like a piece of dust on the light orange ball. The photo shows exact this moment.
