Thanks a lot everyone. August subject will be any astro object and the horizon.

Anything you like: conjuntions (there's a very good opportunity right now near Taurus), moon, sun, stars, planets or whatever. So, start shooting now, pick your best shot. I hope to see LOTS of beautilful pictures at August challenge.

Regards
