Moon rising

by Blythman

Captured the moon rising over the sea this evening. It wasn't long after sunset, and the moon was a gorgeous colour, although so muted that there was no reflection until it was well clear of the horizon

Thanks for comments everyone. Moon was a much better colour than I've seen before.

I've got more images but most will not work as straight shots as the moon brightened up too much as it rose. As the scene generally darkened longer exposures meant the moon was no longer round in any case. I'm not very good with photoshop but I'll try and put together a composite image over the next few days.
