3am Lunacy

By Lillian  
Up at 03:00am today ...
for this special moon that was to set on Stonehenge

Have never attempted this kind of timer photography
( still unable to merge the 5 images taken together
so here's just one of them)!!

Plus I now know I should have moved around at times
to get that moon setting in amongst the stones... next time!!
but you really only have two minutes before it's gone

I had fun

Not sure you need to merge more images. Lots of detail in this and the moon hasn’t burnt out. Love the clever title as well. Grin

Whatever youre on, Iíll have some, Lillian 😀 you went from Sussex to Stonehenge at that hour? Love it! Superb image, I havenít a clue about merging images but this is superb! I wonder if your next one of these will be Callanish, Isle of Lewis? 🙂 more than impressed, right up my street as an image. Stone Circles and the full moon, could be a good Idea for a coffee table book.

It is a glorious image--- I saw it (the moon) thru heavy tree cover---did not consider trying to photograph it, but I did think of it belonging to ALL of us!

YOU got the lovely image!
