I remember when I was young seeing the moon rise between two houses and it seemed to be massive. It turns out that the closer the moon is to the horizon it can see bigger than it was. Combine that with using a telephoto lens which compresses the scene and you can give some extra bang your moon shots.
I knew the moon was full on the night I was heading for a walk. It was around 5:30pm and I checked the StarWalk iPhone App which told me that the moon would rise at 6:20pm. The best vantage point for me would be looking over Tramore town so I was in place just as the moon was cresting the horizon.
Over the next few minutes I was able to capture the following shots.
Next time I’m going to get a more iconic building, perhaps Tramore Church to have in the foreground.
