Extraordinary work here, especially in terms of the amount of planning and positioning it took to get these shots – you have to know exactly where the moon or sun will rise and already have worked out how you can capture the light. The moon is on the horizon for only about a minute, too, so once it starts rising you have no time. Absolutely beautiful.

Solstice full moon rising against the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion, Greece. This SINGLE exposure image was taken from a proper distance so as to have a matching apparent diameter for the rising moon as well as the foreground temple. Also, a proper azimuth and altitude was derived a priori so as to permit for balanced lighting for both foreground and background.
