A composite of two separate images taken years apart (which has confused ViewBug's EXIF info capture - so ignore the shutter speed figures (exposure) to the RHS of the image).
The moon shot was taken at precisely 22:34:53 (so my EXIF data reminds me) on 16 July 2008 in Oradour Fanais, France, using a Nikon D300 and a 300mm lens (see http://www.flickr.com/photos/lorre_01/7918855474/) . The moon became completely full the following night (17-18 July). In combining the two images I have used the moon shot to add atmosphere to the the main image of the rock outcrop, (converted to B&W) which was taken on 2nd September 2013 in coastal Brittany, using the same camera. Exposure details for the main image (the rock outcrop) are ƒ/22; 1/180 sec at ISO 200 using 200mm lens.

Even with a medium telephoto lens it is possible, if you use a tripod, to obtain an image in which you can discern the undulations in the mountain range on the rim of the moon (e.g. see top-left) (See the image enlarged at http://www.flickr.com/photos/lorre_01/7918855474/sizes/l/in/photostream/ which, though it pixelates because of enlargement, shows the undulations at the rim more clearly.) It's worth waiting for a full moon and trying a few shots with a sturdy tripod and a telephoto lens if it happens to be a clear night.
