Some New Year's/New Year Eve Photos

Just a few photos for you. First, from New Year's Eve, the glow of sunset, Venus near the horizon, the Moon and Jupiter (above and left of the Moon) taken with my fisheye lens.

Next a green flash from the setting Sun with the telescopes of Kitt Peak visible on the mountain just to the left.

A post Sunset shot of Kitt Peak.

Finally, Venus setting over saguaros near the bottom of the Catalina Highway.

Here's to a great 2012!

Well, I immediately have a new desktop showing. Thanks! I just need to decide which one I'll display. My screen is wider than taller, so may I order a sideways fisheye shot for the next time? LOVE it, so gorgeous!
