Saturday picture show

I know, I posted a time lapse of Yosemite just two months ago, but this is too gorgeous to pass up. (HD and fullscreen!)

Modern tech is making these kinds of films easier and easier to produce, which means (for me, at least) that the bar is getting raised. It takes a better video to make me say “wow” these days, and this one does it with ease. It helps that the videographer licensed a lovely piece of music: “Sounds of Peace,” by Shaun Paul, and then timed the video to it perfectly. The cymbal at 1:32, as the sunrise suddenly illuminates the dead tree? Shivers.

I’ve found some great music through these kinds of videos, such as Una Mattina by Ludovico Einaudi (which is now one of my favorite albums for writing). And sure enough, when I went to iTunes to check out Shaun Paul, the first two comments were from buyers who had gone directly there from this video.

Time for a download…

    Is there a way to watch videos like this so it doesn’t pause every two seconds to buffer?

      If either your computer or your internet connection is too slow to stream the video smoothly, pause the playback. The video will continue to download, and when you see the progress bar fill (in Vimeo’s case, with a dark gray bar), you’ll know you can play it through without interruption.

        That worked. Lovely video. Just ordinary weather and ordinary days … in one of the more extraordinary places on the planet. 😉

  3. This Park is on my Top 3 of places to visit, If someday I won the lottery or Euromillions this is one of the first places to visit. Damn Lucky Americans.

      We are lucky. Not enough of us know it, though — you’d be amazed at how many Americans have never taken advantage of their national heritage.

      Which is actually fine by me. More space and solitude for the rest of us.
