Photographer and filmmaker Jesse Watson made this beautiful 3-minute short film that shows the silhouettes of a hiking family framed within the rising full moon.
“Hardest part was finding people that were up for a hike in this [115 degree] summer heat,” Watson says. “Once I had the locations plotted, I set up about an hour beforehand to direct Sarah and her kids as well as getting my video rig set up.
“As soon as the moon was in position everything moved quickly and was out of position within a few minutes. You really don’t realize how quick Earth is spinning until you try to shoot something like this or an eclipse.”
Watson is the same photographer who captured a gorgeous time-lapse of a SpaceX “UFO” launch back in 2017.
