The ruined church at Knowlton lies within a circular earth work which is much older. It is also in the Cranborne Chase which is quite a dark location for this part of country.

On this occasion I went there with an approaching first quarter moon to provide illumination to the church front. Worked reasonably well.

The camera is nothing special and I applied a little unsharp masking - more perhaps than I should have - before I downsized the image. Not bad for a first try though. WIll return one moonless night.

The shame is that theres some towns within a few miles and so they light up the sky. Could do with a filter on the DSLR really.

Rather fancied doing same at Wardour Castle but the owners seem to have got cold feet.
