Over the weekend, my photography group made plans for a sunrise photo shoot in the Peak District about 30 minutes from home. The panoramic views from Mam Tor (our destination) roll on for miles inviting cyclists, runners, ramblers and photographers alike, to be part of the landscape. Sunrise was predicted to be 06.42(ish) so we decided to stay overnight at a local campsite to avoid an exceptionally early start. On our way to the campsite we did a quick reccie of our photo spot in case the weather wasn’t so perfect in the morning.
That evening, the sky was clear and bright and as the moon slowly rose up the valley, we rushed for our cameras. But, moon photography is a tricky business, especially if you want to capture the eerie detail of trees and bushes in the glow of the moonlight… the best I could get was this bizarre shot!
