Kerridge Ridge, on the edge of the Peak District, England
Details:
Moonrise over Shining Tor on the edge of the Peak District was expected to be spectacular ... It didn't disappoint! Luna initially showed herself as a feeble glow behind the ridge of the hill, but when she peeped into the twilight sky the scene became other-worldly. The striated cirrus cloud made the Moon almost appear to be rising through the Jovian atmosphere ... What a spectacle, and to make it even more special it was the largest full Moon for nearly 20 years. Composite of various exposures 1/4-1 second, 200 ISO, Nikon D50, 500mm f8 mirror lens
