Picture of the Week
Has to be seen full size so click away
As you probably noticed, it's been a slow week. Work went into overdrive since monday and as such I don't have much time to myself now. Even trying to catch up on all my stories (blog feeds) is prooving to be an huge task.
I saw this pic in one feed entry and thought it was very nice but could do with some cropping IMO. Donal very nearly got a second POTW in a row but he just got pipped at the post :)
Castle and Sky - Credit & Copyright Paco Bellido
Explanation: While Comet McNaught ruled southern skies, last week's conjunction of the Moon and Venus could be enjoyed by denizens of both hemispheres of planet Earth. The two more commonly viewed celestial beacons produced this lovely twilight scene, recorded last Saturday in skies above Almodovar near Cordoba in southern Spain. Brilliant Venus and a slender crescent Moon seem to overlook the small town, along with a well-lit Castle Almodovar. The impressive castle's construction began in the 700s on the strategic site of a Roman fort. It was extensively restored in the 20th century.
