Tittle: Full Moonrise behind the Sesimbra?s Castle. In the last May 27, 2010, I took this 3 images of the Full Moon rising behind the Castle in Sesimbra, a fishing region about 30 km from Lisbon, Portugal. In this great spot I found a privileged view of the coastal region and its imposing castle, located on top of a mountain 240 m (787.40 ft) above sea level, lies strategically (the ruins of) the Moorish castle. It was taken from the Moors, during the Portuguese reconquest in the year 1165 by king Afonso Henriques with the help of Frank Crusaders. The battlements afford a beautiful panorama over Sesimbra, its harbour and the surrounding countryside. I took two pictures of the Moon with different exposures, then I combined them to get a correct exposure in all the light scene.
