Red supermoon by sassaputzin Red supermoon by sassaputzin
Alex nail and i had hoped to make it to Scotland for the weekend last weekend, but traffic conspired against us so we simply ran out of time on our journey, being at the Lake district when we should have been in scotland, (another 4 hrs away). The weather forecast was not good either so we made the best of it by staying the lakes which had a much more favourable forecast.

We knew it was a 'Supermoon' full moon so i'd taken my new 500mm f4 L lens, at 4kg quite a commitment to walk up and down minor mountains with, when the moon rose on the second night diffused through low cloud it made it worth it.....just!

The shot is taken from Gable end which is a peak a mile or so from Scafell (the highest mountain in England at 978m) with the moon rising over Bow Fell, shot as a 4 shot panoramic and stitiched in PTGui software.
