The closest I have come to imaging a Full Moon rising on the horizon. I challenge anyone to try, it's not easy.

The white building's in the foreground are associated with Darent Valley Hospital in Greenhithe, Kent.

>>a very good challenge, Honor!

Will be interesting to see if others rise to it.

I hope so too. It may seem like a trivial challenge to some but as I said, a lot harder to achieve than one may think. It's a good challenge for those just starting out in astrophotography.
