I photographed this unusual combination of an evening sky and moon over South Beach, Blyth in Northumberland after waiting for the moon to arrive mid-point over the jetty. This picture continues to be one of my most popular photographs. For me it shows how simple perspective can encourage a feeling of space and direction. I loved the evening warmth and colours plus a feeling of surrealism. This is a poignant reminder of a beautiful time spent in an unspoilt part of the British coastline. Despite its appearance, there is virtually no digital modification and it was shot on a primitive DSLR with a capacity of only 6 Megapixels.
