Description The last of the last transit of Venus I will likely ever see considering the next one is in the year 2117. I hope everyone got to get out and enjoy this rare show!Image Notes: the large amount of low haze and clouds added with smoke from area fires really shows up here. Besides the very warm color, note how there is a bit of distortion introduced from solar heating fringing effects as well. Later on for comparison I will post one from when the sun was still higher in the sky and the distortion was lower.
Michael Menefee, Fort Collins, Colorado Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Welcome to my online gallery space & thank you for visiting-- I hope you enjoy my images.
I have long had a passion for creating fine art photographs. A large chunk of the work I do could be labeled as nature photography and really it's no surprise. Conservation biology is a central area of interest for me, which is reflected in the subjects I chose. Photography can pair well with birding and botany, two other activities I am passionate about.
Often with my photography I hope to evoke the same sense of childhood wonder and appreciation for nature that experiencing it first-hand instills in me. I hope you find my images to be a fun diversion.
