Full Moon Over Plymouth Hoe

Here is a photo that I took last March (2014) whilst sitting in my car with my family, eating Fish and Chips, at Devils Point in Plymouth. The photograph is looking back over Plymouth Hoe towards Mount Batten and Jenny Cliff.

I took it on my phone as I hadn’t taken my proper camera as I wasn’t expecting to need it, so I was quite annoyed when this scene unfolded before my eyes. My phone doesn’t produce the best photographs when it is dark, but I though this one came out pretty good!

It was a full Moon at about 17:30 so it wasn’t fully dark, but dark enough so that the light of the very bright Moon glistened off of the sea, directly in front of us. It looked absolutely beautiful, especially when a few clouds started to go across the Moon, which made it look somewhat magical.

It was pure luck that we were there at this time, but we were all glad of it and enjoyed the view until we left (and also the Fish and Chips that were delicious!).
