3 of the more interesting photos I got today of the Venus Transit. Capturing the pics was more fun than I expected. First, because I set up the camera on the green space behind the office and got to share the view with lots of friends. Second, because after work I raced sunset to find a hillside view to get "one last shot." It was a fun challenge.

To protect the lens (and hopefully, my eyes) I used Baader solar filter film that I just taped across the sun shade for my 80-400mm lens on a Nikon D300S.
