Harvest Moon

Glastonbury, Somerset

It was a very last minute decision of mine to attempt to photograph the 'supermoon' alongside Glastonbury Tor. I'd tried a few times beforehand in previous years but was thwarted by the weather or my choice of location. The direction of the moonrise dictated that I would need to visit Chalice Hill to get the shot. Even when I arrived I didn't know if the moon would appear from behind cloud, or even line up as I'd hoped. Thankfully everything came together but not before I'd run around a field lining up the tor and moon and getting the exposure right!
