Full Moon Silhouettes is a real time video of the moon rising over the Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington, New Zealand. People had gathered up there this night to get the best view possible of the moon rising. I captured the video from 2.1km away on the other side of the city. It's something that I've been wanting to photograph for a long time now, and a lot of planning and failed attempts had taken place. Finally, during moon rise on the 28th January 2013, everything fell into place and I got my footage.
The video is as it came off the memory card and there has been no manipulation whatsoever. Technically it was quite a challenge to get the final result. I shot it on a Canon ID MkIV in video mode with a Canon EF 500mm f/4L and a Canon 2x extender II, giving me the equivalent focal length of 1300mm.
On the night of December 15th 2012, I set out from Wellington, New Zealand to the remote coastal area of Cape Palliser on the south eastern tip of the North Island. My goal was to capture the Geminid meteor shower, but unfortunately for me, being so far south on in the Southern Hemisphere, the meteors were few and far between.
But all was not lost as it was a perfectly dark cloudless night and millions of stars were shining above. This video is a collection of the images and time lapse I captured that night.
A year passed by.
Riding in different country's, different spots and different conditions... Being on the road shows and brings you a lot, but being at home always gives me a good feeling. Family, friends, my homespot.. it feels good.
Before the winterseason starts i'm up for one of my last dutch sessions! It is always nice to ride with your friends, showing your progression and pushing eachother.
Anthony, Remko and Paul were there to ride with me.. after such a long time it is nice to have fun again.
Ride hard and chase your dreams,
After a diverse season for Davy it's time to go to Brasil. Currently he's out there in the warm and tropical conditions to prepare for the 2013 season.
Davy became European Champion 2012, what a great outcome after all his hard work!
Again a step closer to hiss goal.

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide.
Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.
The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.
A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April (http://bit.ly/g3tsDW) and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.
Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.
So I saw all of these pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do something that is not news footage but something more cinematic. But the flights to get over took forever as expected (somewhat). 4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get.
Wish I had more time. I missed all the cool Lightning and the Lava of the first eruption. But I figure this will just be a trial run for another day.
I am of course accepting sponsors to send me back there for more please...!! haha
