Full Moon shot behind an 800 Year old Church


Photographer Göran Strand, a famous Astrophotographer, took the planning to next level for shooting a Full Moon behind an 800 Year Old Frösö church in Sweden.

He initially planned this shot and did his home work for getting all geared up 6 months ago. He quotes, “I originally got this idea in May this year when I was wandering about on Andersön, a nature reserve located on an island 5 km Southwest of Frösön, Sweden. I noticed that the Frösö church was clearly visible and that it would make a nice foreground against a full moon.”


He used different software like Photopills to plan and execute the shot. He had to wait for 6 months for this perfect shot.

The still photo was taken using Nikon D850 on Nikon AF-S 600mm f/4 D IF-ED II lens. The real time footage of the Moon rising was shot using Nikon D500 and Nikon AF-S 300mm f/2.8 D IF-ED with a Nikon AF-S TC-20E III teleconverter.
