Image taken from Pernat, Island of Cres (Croatia) with the comet only a few degrees above the horizon. Some thin cirrus clouds are present. Since the light from comet passed through the thick layer of atmosphere, the colors are grey. Photo taken with 300mm, f/4 Asahi Pentax camera lens (6x7) and Kodak Vericolor 400 film.
