Avebury Moonrise

Continuing with my interest in night photography, here's a 30 second exposure from a few months back. I went to the stone circle for the rise of the full moon which came up right between the stones from where I was standing. In less than an hour it was rising nicely as the sun set behind me and the street lights lit up the stones.


I had an underexposed shot to reduce the intensity of the blown out moon, but I think it looks good as it is. This has to be one of the few times an aircraft trail adds something good to a photo, a rare thing indeed!
