Blue moon by Alex37 Blue moon by Alex37
I was up at 4 am with 4 1/2 hours of perfect sleep on a great nights camp up on Dartmoor in still conditions.

If anyone is wondering about the composition there was a certain difficulty with trying to shoot at 200mm (to get the moon as big as possible) and including a foreground. In the end I was limited where I could stand by the rock stacks on the hillside. Nevertheless I am happy with the image, even if I can see lots of room for improvement. The foreground is lit by early dawn light

Thanks, I'm always trying to shoot moonset and rise, but nearly always cloud scuppers my plans!

nice work mate and great crop. I know how hard it is when shooting telephoto landscapes to include somthing in the sky as well as foreground interest! Especially at the 400mm end!

cheers Justin. I need to get myself a serious telephoto, either a 300 f4 IS or a 400 5.6.
