Once in a blue moon

On the 31st of July 2015, Luke Taylor who is a Nature/Landscape Photographer based in Byron Bay, captured the rise of the Full Blue Moon in Aquarius.

It was a beautiful sight to witness & lucky for me to capture in a time lapse. This video is made up of 1038 frames & slowed down as close to real time as I could make it. I have been working on perfecting this type of time lapse for over a year now after seeing the work of a favorite photographer of mine Mark Gee. Mark helped by teaching me a few steps to get the image that I was looking for & furthering it by trying to get it in a time lapse motion. It has taken many attempts with many failures along the way, but I wold have to say that this piece is my best attempt to date.

To get this type of video, time lapse or still image from where I captured it in Byron Bay you need perfect weather conditions & also not much sea mist so that you don’t have to much haze blurring the view. Timing & location are essential also …

Why Blue Moon?

The reason I called this video ‘Once in a Blue Moon'”, says Luke Taylor,”is because this moon was a blue moon, it was the second full moon in a calendar month – July 2015, making it a rare “blue boon”. It is not because of the color which many viewers believe.”
