⠀ @dkphotographyau | "This Supermoon image has been a bucket list shot for us for almost 6 years now & every single year the conditions haven't lined up for us, but not today! 😎 Many years ago our @nikonaustralia Rep once asked us "What bucket list image can we help you achieve?". Without hesitation, this was it. When we woke up feeling a lot better after a nasty virus had us both sick in bed all week & we saw the clouds were clear & the moon rose right on blue hour, we gave them a call & we were given a 600mm lens (a $10k lens), the perfect focal range to capture this shot with our D850.
But when we arrived in Byron we realised we had very few places to shoot from. We used PhotoPills (an app) to calculate the correct alignment & elevation & realised there was only one place & it was on a farm approximately 5km from the lighthouse. What we weren't expecting is the property owner to be a famous Australian musician.😳 Much to our surprise we were given permission to shoot from their property (thank you) & after some hairy moments at sunset when the moon didn't align with the lighthouse & we had to run 50-100m to quickly capture the frame, we finally got it! The moment lasted seconds & while it's not perfect, we were so happy to finally capture it.” #MyWildEarth
Got up super early and drove across to the southeast portion of the Las Vegas valley to try and catch the moon setting. It made a VERY brief appearance through a sliver of clouds before it disappeared. #springishere#lasvegas#supermoonsupercity
