John Tipping captured this image of Mars and Venus in the morning sky, with Mercury peeping through the clouds as well very low down.

The image was taken from near Northwich Cheshire using a Canon 700D, 18mm lens at F/6.3 and a 2 second exposure at 200 ISO.
The camera's software was used to show Mars & Mercury better.
