Wanaka on the way to Haast, somewhere. New Zealand, taken on a full moon raising over the mountains. the hard part of this was trying to find a good spot to shoot this image, not knowing where the moon would raise, it masks it hard due to the driving on winding roads so many corners you sort of get disorientated and lost track of where you are sometimes, well after about 3 hours and around 10:30pm i found a spot, finally. so about this image, using a tripod i position myself not moving the camera for about 3 hours i took about 60 shots but only used 4 different exposures in the end, so as the moon raised and the stars came out with the milky way just made for a great experience. photoshop - blending the 4 shots together along with levels and curves, colour balance, filter effects, de noise, sharpening.
