The ultimate full moon shot. Dean Potter walks a highline at Cathedral Peak as the sun sets and the moon rises. Shot from over 1 mile away with a Canon 800mm and 2X by Mikey Schaefer. This shot was part of a bigger project for National Geographic called The Man Who Can Fly. Well, the effect of the huge moon comes from the “1600mm lens”, the camera is nearly irrelevant here! And because of the endless zoom effect, every little movement of the moon is “increased” even in normal frames per second.
