Photographer Andrew Sharpe has created a memorable video showing the remarkable movement of the Strawberry Moon over Ely Cathedral.

Mr Sharpe, of Ely, says his passion is landscape photography “and my spiritual home is amongst the mountains and lakes”.

But his hordes of social media followers also know him for his stunning images – posted regularly – of Ely Cathedral and the changing perspectives it offers to a professional photographer.

He described his Strawberry Moon footage as “a bit rough and ready” but it offers viewers nonetheless a glorious insight into how an unusually hot spell has cleared the skies for night time observation.

The term Strawberry Moon is thought to have come from Native American tribes as the phenomenon occurs towards the end of June and what is generally regarded the peak time for strawberry picking.

While most of us were asleep Mr Sharpe had his cameras acutely focused towards the cathedral and caught perfectly the full moon’s journey.
