Kerridge Ridge, on the edge of the Peak District, England
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
