Beautiful Moonrise Caught On Film
Professional photographer, Mark Gee, said it was no easy task to get the moon rise this clearly on camera. Eventually, he was able to capture the above video at the Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. On his Vimeo post, where this video was originally found, Gee said filming the moon in this way is something he's wanted to photograph for a long time now. A lot of planning and failed attempts took place but "finally," he said, "during [the] moon rise on the 28th January 2013, everything fell into place and I got my footage." Though the footage looks like an animated trick, Gee claims "the video is as it came off the memory card and there has been no manipulation whatsoever." It's hard to believe, but after taking a look at his other work found on his website, I have a hard time believing he would ever resort to dishonesty in trying to produce a quality piece of art.
