Full Moon Silhouettes

Take some time out of your busy, chaotic day for a few minutes to relax.

This is a 3 minute video clip of the full moon rising over Wellington. It was shot on a calm summer evening, as people gathered on the Mt. Victoria Lookout point to watch the moon rise.

This stunning video is one single real-time shot, with no manipulation whatsoever. The camera was placed on a hillside over 2 kilometers from the Lookout point, and was shot with the equivalent of a 1300mm lens.

The amount of planning, trial and error, and luck that went into this are mind blowing. The photographer had been trying to capture this for over a year with many failed attempts. But on this special night, it seemed everything was on his side, and it all came together in a way better than even he couldn’t have hoped.

I honestly can’t say enough good things about this video – from the magnitude of the visuals, to the intimate stories playing out with the people, to the sheer humbling nature of seeing the awe-inspiring reality of this giant rock in the sky that we so often don’t stop to appreciate.

One thing I encourage you to do is watch this on the biggest screen you have.
