Description

Lake Tekapo is an incredible place to visit. It's located on the South Island of New Zealand, and is surrounded by amazing mountainous landscapes. It's also part of the gold level status Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, which means it has some of the darkest night skies in the world, and is a perfect place for stargazing and to see our own Milky Way Galaxy. Each year I travel to Lake Tekapo to explore the area and find new and interesting locations to photograph and time-lapse, and this short film is a collection of some of my favourite time-lapses from the area. A big thanks goes out to Earth and Sky and the University of Canterbury Mt John Observatory for allowing me access to Mount John at night. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A short film by Mark Gee Many thanks to: Earth & Sky: http://www.earthandskynz.com Syrp: http://syrp.co.nz Canon New Zealand: http://www.canon.co.nz Music: Truth To Tell by Big Score Audio ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to know more?
