As you know by now, I use this forum as a means of creative expression.
Yes, that means for the most part I rant and rave about whatever catches my fancy that day......., but it’s much more than that bunky!
It allows me to share things which I find unusual, profound, fun, or just plain interesting,!
This is one of those things!
Attached is a 3 minute video clip of the full moon rising over Wellington, New Zealand. 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. The camera was placed on a hillside over 2 kilometres from the Lookout point, and was shot with the equivalent of a 1300 mm lens.
The amount of planning, trial and error, and luck that went into this are mind blowing. The shooter has been trying to capture this for over a year with many failed attempts. But it seems everything was on his side on this night and it all came together in a way even he couldn’t have hoped.
Good things about this video are the magnitude of the visual, the intimate stories playing out with the people, 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.
