Argyll and Bute. Hasselblad XPan 90mm. February 2018.
The delicate pink ‘Belt of Venus’ appears shortly before sunrise. Also known as the anti-twilight arch, this phenomenon separates the earth’s shadow from the approaching sunlight of dawn. The effect is most visible low on the western horizon and particularly around the antisolar point – the part of the sky directly opposite the sun. I wanted to time this event with a full moon setting over the distinctive profile of The Cobbler, a conjunction which happens only a couple of times a year.
