Bicycling through forests and moonscapes lit in different colors is so cool

Doing things at night is always a little more edgy, a little more scary, and a lot more fun. Doing things at night while lighting up entire forests in the Pacific Northwest and moonscapes in Utah in different colors is all of that night fun with a giant load of awesome added in. It looks like a completely different… »10/21/15 4:07pm10/21/15 4:07pm

Video: A totally stunning aerial tour of forests and mountains

I’m a city person. I like buildings and bridges and streets and corners. I like angles and materials and signs and lights. But even I can let my jaw hang throughout this entire video about forests and mountains. The aerial video filmed by Earth Porn Films starts with the greenery of Alberta, Canada and transforms into… »8/18/15 9:15pm8/18/15 9:15pm

A glow in the dark forest is a magical and trippy place

My, this is beautiful. Artists Friedrich van Schoor and Tarek Mawad teamed up in this projection map installation to create a 'bioluminescent forest'. The entire forest glows with light, from the mushrooms to the trees to the leaves to the grounds to the insects. The darkness is transformed into a magical place. »12/24/14 9:36pm12/24/14 9:36pm

Photo Essay: NYC's Incredible Christmas Tree Seller Subculture

The Friday night after Thanksgiving is when all the little forests pop up around the city. Most Christmas tree outlets—bodegas, parks, supermarkets, and big-box stores—have a team that comes in to set up wooden display racks, while electricians wire up lights to a generator and a truck drops off Fraser Firs to sell… »12/24/14 5:30pm12/24/14 5:30pm

Video: Incredible view of a hawk flying through a forest of trees

Now this is a true bird's eye view of flying. And in the future, this may be how DARPA drones fly too. The footage shows a Goshawk flying super fast through a dense forest and somehow navigating through it. Its wings occasionally hits trees but it still manages to zip itself through impossible narrow gaps at high… »12/22/14 9:31pm12/22/14 9:31pm

Pilot lands airplane in the middle of a forest way up in the mountains

That's some serious skill. Not only is the plane landing in the mountains, it's also in the middle of the forest. Not only is it in the middle of the forest but the runway is incredibly narrow. Not only is the runway narrow but it's a bumpy ass strip of dirt too. So yeah. That is some serious skill. »11/07/14 8:35pm11/07/14 8:35pm

Fly On Board With These Quadrotors Racing Through a Forest

The Phantom Menace has approximately one good scene: the bit where people race through canyons at high speed while people shoot at them. Although reality might not quite be up to jet engines and high-powered rifles quite yet, a group of quadrotor hobbyists have managed to replicate the first-person thrill of racing a… »10/10/14 3:00am10/10/14 3:00am

This is the closest you can get to fly speeder bikes at Endor's forest

I never thought that skating through a forest was possible but—looking at this video of Andreas Wirnstl, Marco Dallago, and Luca Dallago zooming through a forest in Graz, Austria—apparently it is. It must really feel exhilarating to race like that, like driving a speeder bike in Return of the Jedi. »5/13/14 8:24pm5/13/14 8:24pm
