Picture of the week 2
Submitted by Alan Pickering

Alan was up early this morning (4-ish) to see first the Moon rise above the trees, then Venus and finally Mercury - capturing this picture when Mercury was just coming above the trees. I've dispayed at a size to make Mercury visible so you'll need to scroll down for it.
