This 3-minute video clip of the full moon rising over Wellington, New Zealand was shot on a calm summer evening as people gathered on the Mt Victoria Lookout point.
The stunning video is one single real-time shot with no manipulation whatsoever. The camera was placed on a hillside over 2km 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 tried to capture this for over a year with many failed attempts. But recently it all came together in a way even he couldn’t have hoped.
One thing I encourage you to do is watch this on the biggest screen you have – don’t waste it on an iphone screen.
