I'm happy to announce Moon Silhouettes has won the People and Space category in the Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2013.

People usually gather on Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand to take in the view of the surrounding city below. But on this particular day the moon rose right behind the lookout revealing the silhouettes of the onlookers. This photo was shot from over 2km away on the other side of Wellington city the day after full moon at the end of March 2013.

I used the same technique to shoot this image as I had done with my Full Moon Silhouettes Video
