Liza Dracup captures the beauty of moonlight on film By Emma McFarnon

 As day turns to night the rolling countryside landscape transforms, taking on a magical and ghost-like presence under moonlight.

 The bewitching effects of moonlight, captured on film by photographer Liza Dracup is currently on display at the The Mercer Art Gallery until 4 September.
 Drawing inspiration from the light used in paintings by Victorian artist John Atkinson Grimshaw, Dracup's latest images form a photographer's response to one of the most successful painters of the 19th century.
