Transit of Venus

Transit of Venus earlier this morning from Auckland, New Zealand
I didn't think I'd get to see much today as it's pretty cloudy.  However, the clouds broke and there was as chance to see the transit of Venus across the sun.  I used my Nikkor 70-200mm lens with an aperture of f16 and ... wait for it ... a welding mask!  I set the camera on Live View and then tried to line things up to get the shot.
Same shot as before, but with a bit of a twiddle in Photoshop in an attempt to correct the colours.
