Full Moon Silhouettes (VIDEO) 28JAN13

I have always been fascinated with the Moon and stars, and when I am back home in Scandia, Pennsylvania, a beautiful place where one can go out on a clear night and see the Milky Way, I do just that, before I go to bed, no matter the season. This video is just beautiful, and I hope you enjoy and share it with others.....



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. I shot it on a Canon ID MkIV in video mode with a Canon EF 500mm f/4L and a Canon 2x extender II, giving me the equivalent focal length of 1300mm.
