Nice shot - where was it taken?

many thanks. It was taken in North Cornwall, from the edge of Bodmin Moor, as it rose over Dartmoor. I would have been able to zoom in closer in the frame and have both the moon and the moor. I have some zoomed shots but without the horizon they don't work. It is the same spot as the sunrise in my portfolio. Unfortunately there was low cloud over Dartmoor and I had to wait for it to clear the cloud. I was hoping to get it as it cleared the moor, I even missed the last 3 songs of "the Voice" (sad man) waiting for the moon to appear in a small gap in the cloud cover just as the sun was setting behind me.
