Earthrise was not taken from the surface of the Moon. It was taken from Apollo 8. IIRC they weren't even in Moon orbit - they were on a free-return (to Earth) trajectory.

oops. from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_8 'The crew orbited the Moon ten times over the course of twenty hours, during which they made a Christmas Eve television broadcast'.
