The planet Venus is the brightest object in the sky (except the Sun and the Moon). It is so bright that it is visible in broad daylight if conditions are good, i.e. if the sky is clear and if Venus is far enough from the Sun.
This Feburary 4, 2004, the sky is good, no more. Then I decided to try to capture Venus in broad daylight. It was about 2 o'clock PM when I spot it with naked eye and situate it behind branches in order to locate if more easily in the picture.
Venus is well visible: it's the white dot just on the left of the middle of the picture. The branches are fuzzy because the focus has been done to the infinite. The white patches on the branches are parts illuminated by sunlight ; This is the proof that this picture has been taken in broad daylight.
