Moonrise in the Brecon Beacons

I have seen countless sunrises (and sunsets) but I have never witnessed a ‘moonrise’. I knew the moon would be coming out so was expecting it, but what I wasn’t expecting is how it felt. The moon is typically white in the sky so that was I was expecting. I was shooting photos of Pen y Fan when I glanced across and say a bright ball just peak above the horizon. It’s difficult to explain, but it was pretty amazing! I can understand why people in the past found the moon mystical and were in awe of it. The photo below was taken a few second after the moon had risen.

As usual, I spent a while identifying the constellations.
