Ascendance is a tribute to nature’s unpredictable power and beauty by Henry Jun Wah Lee.

I went out to film the Perseid meteor shower but I encountered so much more. When you are out there, you never know for sure what nature will bring. Always be ready for a magical experience.

Galapagos – through the lens of iPhone 4S

Under - Geography, Industrial Design, Inspiration, Media, Nature, Technology

Hard to believe that this small short by Miguel Endara is done through iPhone 4s! A brilliant device for capturing video but even more brilliant the person behind who used it in such a way.

Thoroughly impressed with the quality and stability of the iPhone 4S. Video briefly documents the amazing 2 week honeymoon/adventure in the Galapagos with the lovely wife, Lily Vidal.

The Rings Of The Earth

Under - Media, Nature

A very imaginative animated piece by Roy Prol showing how beautiful it would have been if our planet had rings like Saturn.

Great for fantasy perhaps but in reality it would cause constant shadow on the planet surface during the day and a bright illuminated thing in the sky at night all the time. Because of the light pollution at night, we would have not been able to see stars and that Milky Way. Moon had not been that significant or must have been disintegrated to become part of the ring. There was debris falling from sky all the time (meteor shower lots of time – resulting in another spectacle!).

Last look at the Himalayas by Off-Road Studios

Under - Geography, Media, Nature, Photography

Interesting piece of work highlighting the plight of Himalayas due to global warming by Off-Road Studios. It will be great to watch full length documentary.

Off-Road Studios is an integrated communications agency taking care of 360 media requirements of its clients while fulfilling its social and environmental responsibilities at the same time.

For several years, evidence has been mounting that the global climate is steadily getting warmer. As a result the melting glaciers are constantly undressing the majestic snow covered peaks of Himalayas. Last Look at the Himalayas is an environmental conservation documentary by Off-Road Studios, aiming to capture what’s left and promote the struggle against global warming.

Midnight Sun | Iceland – a breathtaking timelapse by Joe Capra

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media, Nature, Photography

A natural phenomenon occurring in the summer months north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle where the sun never fully sets and remains visible 24 hours a day.

This short time lapse film was shot during the Icelandic Midnight Sun in June of 2011 by Los Angeles, California based photographer Joe Capra.

For 17 days I travelled solo around the entire island shooting almost 24 hours, sleeping in the car, and eating whenever I had the time. During my days shooting this film I shot 38,000 images, travelled some 2900 miles, and saw some of the most amazing, beautiful, and indescribable landscapes on the planet. Iceland is absolutely one of the most beautiful and unusual places you could ever imagine. Especially during the Midnight Sun when the quality of light hitting the landscape is very unusual, and very spectacular.

Iceland during the Midnight Sun is in sort of a permanent state of sunset. The sun never full sets and travels horizontally across the horizon throughout the night, as can be seen in the opening shot and at the :51 second mark in the video.

Midnight Sun

During the Arctic summer, sunset was at midnight and sunrise was at 3am. The Arctic summer sun provided 24 hours a day of light, with as much as 6 hours daily of “Golden light”. Once the sun had set it wouldn’t even get dark enough for the stars to come out, and they don’t start to reappear until August.
