Venus at Sunset

Tonight I thought I'd try going out a little earlier to a place with an unobstructed view of the horizon to see if I could catch Mercury, Venus, and Saturn in one photograph. Unfortunately, Saturn was lost in the haze of the sunset--I couldn't see it except with my binoculars, and then only barely. If Saturn were visible in this photo, it would be above the valley about 1/4 of the way from the right edge of the picture.

The bright dot near the top of the frame is Venus, and Mercury is barely visible to the left.
