Venus Sunset

Here is my photo for Sunday's Meme Sunrise Sunset

To join in the fun go here

Venus Over Lake Wilhelmina

This photo was taken Friday evening from a vista along the Talimena Scenic Drive. Talimena Scenic Drive stretches across the very top of the Ouachita Mountains in Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas. It is a Scenic Byway offering 54 miles of spectacular views and incredible scenery as it makes it's way from Mena, Arkansas to Talihina, Oklahoma.

It was late enough that Venus was already visible. Look in the upper right hand corner of the photo. I didn't have my tripod with me, so I had to steady the camera on the car. I took a number of shots, but most of them were not sharp.

You can see Lake Wilhelmina shining in the lower portion of the photo. Lake Wilhelmina is a great fishing lake just a few miles from Mena.
