A double dose of moonshots this spring and the chance to improve on the Snow Moon shots I took earlier in the year – and this time from the relative comfort of the loft. I took the opportunity the night before of using TPE (The Photographers Ephemeris) to see where and when the moon would be rising, and then went up to the loft to see what shot I could take.

    Well done. You should definitely feel proud of this photograph.
