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.

Her work will be shown alongside Grimshaw's paintings in the exhibition Atkinson Grimshaw: Painter of Moonlight, which runs at The Mercer Art Gallery, Harrogate, until 4 September 2011. For more information visit The Mercer Art Gallery.
