Venus Transits the Sun

Here are the first photos (that I have seen anyways) from Europe of Venus transiting the sun.  Conditions were very good for shooting this morning, and I had about a 4 minute window before clouds completely covered the sun.  I was shooting with a Nikon D800, 28-300mm lens, Slik Pro tripod, and remote release, and all photos were taken from the Bacoli sea wall just outside of Naples, Italy.  No filters were even necessary.  I will post again later but I wanted to get these up now for everyone to enjoy :)  Feel free to share!
