Full moon. Moon beam. Moonrise. Moonlight. Moonstone. Super moon. Moon phase. Moondance.
I love the moon. I always have. There is just something about it. The mystery of it, its beauty, the fact that it is always there but forever changing shape – these are all things I love about the moon. This video, Full Moon Silhouettes, makes me love the moon even more. Here is what the videographer said about shooting this piece:
“Full Moon Silhouettes is a real time video of the moon rising over the Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. People had gathered up there this night to get the best view possible of the moon rising. I captured the video from 2.1km away on the other side of the city. It’s something that I’ve been wanting to photograph for a long time now, and a lot of planning and failed attempts had taken place. Finally, during moon rise on the 28th January 2013, everything fell into place and I got my footage.
The video is as it came off the memory card and there has been no manipulation whatsoever. Technically it was quite a challenge to get the final result.”
