The Reel Bear Creek Highlights, or... Gone With The Wind
I put together a little six minute highlight video of hiking Bear Creek for your Memorial Weekend enjoyment... in case you are trapped indoors by rain, or forty MPH winds like we're having here in the Crevice. God... is there anything more torturous than gale force winds? It's Natures equivalent to water-boarding; I've told Her everything I know and She relents not.
I enjoy the symbiotic chemistry of blending photographs with video. Thanks to Ken Burns we now have the ability to animate still photos... we can focus in or pan just as we would with video. In fact, we can make a "movie" from still photos alone. But a mix of video and stills gives the broadest view... the best of both worlds... and better relates the "entirety" of a landscape. Better still, is the ability to add mood with a music soundtrack. Music can magically transform a boring home movie into "art."
I hope your weather is kinder/gentler than ours. Enjoy the video and have a great weekend.
Thanks for checking in. Mark.
