Moonset over the Lovell Telescope

Suffering temporarily (I hope!) from a bad back, I woke before the sun one morning in July and giving up on sleep headed up a favourite hill to watch the sun rise, and hopefully catch the full moon setting. Half way up the hill I saw the moon, very close to the horizon. Not wanting to risk waiting until the summit I took a couple of shots, which was fortunate as by the time I made it to the top it was gone. Photoshop was made for occasions like this, so I combined the image of the moon from lower down with the more scenic view form the top, resulting in the first image here.

The Big Idiot

Enjoying the heatwave the UK is currently experiencing, the dog and I took a walk up a nearby hill, where he posed for this epic portrait.
