February’s full moon is called a Snow Moon and here you will see the full Snow Moon moonset in London, right between the City skyscrapers.
And if you have been following me for some time, you know I’m a sucker for a good moon photo. The moon is in fact featured a lot in this blog:
- Photo Mission: Moonrise (YouTube)
- Going After the Super Snow Moon
- On The Hunt For The Super Blood Wolf Moon
- The Pink Supermoon
So, this moonset…
I had to wake up early again for this moonset timelapse, always aware that this could turn into another failure after the multiple attempts with the Tower Bridge sunrise (successful in the end, check the post here). And once again, it is a Holy Grail Night-To-Day time-lapse, using the same settings and technique I described in the Tower Bridge video.
I think what’s really amazing about this specific moonset timelapse is that the moon sets exactly as the sun rises so the colours in the sky are just beautiful.
I spent about 2 hours in the cold but again the new battery of the Fujifilm X-T4 did not disappoint: it went on with the time-lapse for 1400 shots and the battery was still half full. Coming from years of shooting with Fujifilm, the battery is what keeps surprising me. And the GFX100S will use the same battery! 🙂
I can’t say the same about the Fujifilm X-T2, the other camera I used in this video. Which is a great camera but the battery doesn’t last long enough and here it also consistently failed me with its autofocus… So, apologies for all the times I went out of focus while talking. It was difficult to set the camera to manual focus here but I’ll definitely do it next time.
As I say in the video, everything is a learning experience! 🙂
Anyway, here’s my Snow Moon moonset in London time-lapse, I let you enjoy it.

And I’ll see you next time! Cheers.
