Harvest Moon lights up the Wrekin mast

What a view - a spectacular sight with the Wrekin mast silhouetted against the final supermoon of the year.

I captured this shot while standing in a field about two miles away.

A real bonus is the plane on the left, which I didn’t spot until editing my pictures when I got back home.

Supermoons happen when the moon is closest to the Earth, appearing bigger and brighter than normal.

The full moon nearest to the autumn equinox is known as the Harvest Moon, and it can fall at any time between September and October.

In the past, it enabled farmers to extend their working day as they gathered crops to prepare for the winter months.
