    Looks like lens flare to me.

    Is that the moon? Looks a lot like the sun in this shot.

    You are never going to be able to expose for moon and the moon lit landscape in the same shot. They are just too different. In this one you have some detail in the shadows...but the moon is way, way overexposed.

    Hi mike!
    Lens Flare i could not think what it was called! how can i stop that on the future?
    Oh and yes its the moon!
    If i didn't have so much exposure then most of the picture was black/dark

    Taking pictures directly towards a light source is going to over expose that area.
    Can avpid this by taking several pictures in the same position to expose the different aspects and link them together or use something like a Graduated Neutral Density filter.
