Timelapse looking northeast towards the full moon rising behind the notch in the Fairy Stone at Hordron Edge stone circle in Derbyshire. The composition is nearly perfect but I wish I'd planned ahead and taken a source of light to illuminate the stone for the duration of the moonrise - it would also have allowed me to reduce the exposure to bring out the detail on the surface of the moon. Incidentally, it was so cold that evening that while waiting for the images to record, a bottle of water in my rucksack developed a thick layer of ice.
The video is 19 seconds long and consists of 566 images shot at 5 second intervals between 5:01pm and 5:48pm on 29th January 2010.
