This was shot and processed with HDR software (high dynamic range) to get detail on both the moon and foreground, else the moon over exposes or the foreground under exposes.  So we do two shots exact same with cam on tripod, one expose for moon and one for foreground.  Then software merge the two shots to get best of both worlds.  Shot with Sigma 70-200 f2.8 zoom at f2.8 45th sec iso200 and second shot f6.7 (exposing for moon) using spot metering.

Be careful of the words you say.
And keep them soft and sweet.

Namibia May 2007. Camped at Langstrand, between Walvisbaai and Swakopmund. This is moonrise over the desert dunes.
Old, grey, crafty...

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.

HP, remember the moon is a light source.

The auto settings on most cameras will severely overexpose the moons surface, it looks like a distant light to the camera.

So put camera on manual and use an amazingly short exposure. Can't remember, it's like 1/10 s at f8. Experiment.

Here's one I took long ago, also bit overexposed:
