Transit of Venus Over the Sun

This morning we had an opportunity to see last transit of Venus over the Sun in this century. I could not miss that. :)

The alarm went off at 4 AM (yes, waking up is always the hardest part), we were on the location at 5 AM so there was enough time to prepare for shooting this rare phenomena.

Setup and Location:

  • Camera & lens: Canon 5D mkII, 70-200 f/2.8 L IS, TC 2x, @400mm, f/32, 1/8000 sec, ISO 50
  • Filters: B&W ND400 + Hoya CPL,  just enough to kill the sunshine :)
  • Date & time: 6.6.2012., 6:12:51 AM
  • Location: Malacka on mountain Kozjak, Croatia.
