Not-quite-wallpaper Monday

While looking around for wallpapers today, I came across this video, which is essentially 5:30 minutes of non-stop wallpapers that track a trail runner on his run up Suilven Mountain in the Scottish Highlands:

Suilven: The Trail Runner” is a short film following Tom as he runs out of the sleepy town of Lochinver, leaving civilisation behind and into the desolate and remote countryside, up onto one of the most distinctive mountains in Scotland. We follow him across the moorland, through the bogs and lochan before journeying with him onto the ridge, looking out to the Atlantic Ocean before descending to the south and visiting the Falls of Kirkaig as he leaves the mountain behind.

The filming is artistic and beautiful — one of my favorite moments is when the runner is seen from inside an old shack, as he flashes past the open doorway — and in combination with the gorgeous scenery, it makes for a visual poem.

Enjoy. (And if you can, watch it in HD, because holy moly. You can practically feel the rough texture of the heather.)
