Full Moon at Stonehenge at the Summer Solstice

Here's a photo I took of the full moon rising at Stonehenge last night at the Summer Solstice - the first time the two events happened at the same time since 1967. The name of the full moon was apparently the Strawberry Moon.

I will be posting more about my visit to Stonehenge later, but this was my favourite picture - and it really didn't do justice to the amazing sight of the full moon seen between the megaliths.

Oh and here is a link to a news story I found about the Strawberry Moon: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/21/strawberry-moon-lights-up-night-sky-on-summer-solstice/

This is a stunning photo and beats anything I've ever taken.

Wow, thank you! I only took the picture with a very old Fuji Finepix.
