Bevan Percival, currently one of the finalists in the running to be the New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year, has created a breathtaking timelapse of New Zealand’s sky swelling with stars. N O C T U R N A L 4 K was created off New Zealand’s typically beaten path, deep in the thick forests that stretch across the small country of the southern hemisphere.
