This is a photo I captured while we were filming our Photographing The World Video Tutorial Series, when we camped out near Mt. Cook in New Zealand. It was a beautiful night and as the moon set on the left side of the frame, millions of stars became visible in the clear sky.
Because of the bright moon, there was also plenty of light to illuminate the iconic shape of Mt. Cook in the distance. It made for a very interesting shooting experience and a very unique shot.
While out there for the night, we also found out that Patrick Hall from Fstoppers has an irrational fear of possums. ;)
