An English Summer’s Night

Just a quick post to say: No. England’s summer has not been amazing this year! However, I just looked out of my kitchen window to this view of the full moon. On the most beautifully clear night, shining over the fields. This made me happy so I ran outside with my Nikon and snapped this shot!
