Comet McNaught in the evening Sky

After some days with cloudy evening weather, I got lucky and spotted the comet today while riding my bicycle. At home I grabbed my camera, and took some shots of the setting comet.The comet was quite a nice visually, except Venus no other celestial object was in sight. This thing is bright!!
