Burrow Mump, Somerset

The Morning Moon and the Misty Mump

At 3:45am on a July morning my alarm went off. 30 minutes later I was stood in a field waiting for the moon to drop towards the horizon near Burrow Mump. There are few days in the year when the moon rises or sets at the right time for this kind of picture to work. More so, there's only one day in the year when it's possible to capture this particular view of it.

'The Morning Moon and the Misty Mump' is also available as a greeting card.
