An early morning excursion as far as my front drive gave me this wonderful view of the waning crescent moon, rising through the dawn light in the skies just above the roofs of our housing estate in North Wales.
So it was no real hardship to set up my camera and tripod to record the event in this time lapse video while sipping on a warming cup of tea as the sky gradually drew lighter.
My neighbours and passing early morning dog walkers were giving me some funny looks though!
