Planet Pair at Dawn

Chaska, MN view map

Here's a shot of Jupiter and Venus (the brighter of the two) taken at dawn. While the shot might not be all that spectacular, the conditions under which it was taken certainly were.
Air temperature was -15F with a windchill of -40F. I now have a much greater appreciate for how quickly your skin can freeze when exposed to these conditions.
My cheeks still felt "sunburned" almost three days after shooting this. Not the brightest of things I've done in my life...
