When the moon started rising it was completely not where I had expected it to be, so I had to scramble to get the first shots...


Fortunately I had time and space to get to the other side of the field to align the moon behind this tree more or less like I had planned to - just from a different angle.

The moon moves surprisingly fast and always looks largest when it's very low on the horizon, so I kept dropping the tripod down and moving left to get a few more versions of the previous image, and then got a last couple shots of it further up in the sky... Still big and bright.

I didn't actually use an interval timer, but I took enough extra frames I could make this little timelapse...

@lukaso666 Thank you! I'm really happy with how these came out...

@masklayer this is gorgeous !! :D i really like how it feels so muted and somber, yet utterly at peace with itself. the composition is lovely.
