Full moon rise over The Helderberg Mountain in Somerset West, Cape Town.
The Helderberg Mountain is part of the Hottentots-Holland mountain range in the Western Cape, South Africa.

This full moon image was created using two different exposures - one of the mountain face in focus with early the blue shades of evening sky in the background. The other of the moon itself so that I could capture its craters and surface without the highlights being too overexposed.

Time was against me because the moon was rising and I had this composition in mind that I wanted to capture.

I noticed after taking the shot that there was some well placed clouds just behind the mountain that added another layer of depth to the shot.
