(Super) Moonset from 10 March 2020 in Wellington, New Zealand

With everything that's going on in the world at the moment, it's always good to go back to enjoying some of the simple things in life, like taking time out to enjoy the beauty of nature.

I shot this video of the (super) moon setting behind my favorite treeline to the west of the city of Wellington, New Zealand last Tuesday morning. The video has been speed up so it's more of a time-lapse.

For the tech details, the shoot was planned with PhotoPills, and I was 7.4km from the treeline. I shot the video with a Nikon D850 and a 600mm f/4 lens with a 1.4x extender, giving me a total focal length of 840mm. Sunrise was only 25 minutes after I shot this, but because I exposed for the bright moon, the background came out black giving me a great silhouette of the trees as the moon passed behind them. In post, I stabilised the horizontal motion of the moon so it sets vertically rather than drifting right to left, giving the landscape left to right motion instead.
