I live in Wales and have previously travelled to London on three separate occasions to capture a Full Moon, including the lunar eclipse in January 2019. After these three failed attempts, I finally got an image of London’s iconic Shard skyscraper with a Full Moon behind it. Using a telephoto lens, the Moon races through the frame, giving you just a few minutes to capture the shot. I especially enjoy how the glass of the top floors distorted the Moon as it passed behind the building.
