Following a lovely sunset over the North Wales coast my wife Liz and I were relucant to head straight home.
So I turned my gaze, and my camera, skywards to capture this short time lapse sequence of a quarter moon slowly descending towards the horizon through a rapidly darkening twilight sky.
This phase of the moon is one of the best for photography, as the angle of light from the sun highlights the craters on the moon's surface.
Looking through the long end of my 100-400mm zoom lens you can just about make out these features in this low resolution version of the clip, but the 4K+ version available via my Pond5 portfolio at the link above, is much clearer.
