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 the winter wonderland that is Alaska. It is truly stunning.
“It is truly stunning.”
Is it? Have you ever camped in a low-light area and seen the Milky Way? Or rather you haven’t but saw some video so assume such an experience is “truly stunning”? Videos and aerial views are great. But experience is even better. Just crickets and owls and leaves crunching due to [bear? deer? skunk?], no highway noise, no neighbors, just prone looking up at the sky.
[p.s. the Milky Way Galaxy is actually viewable from this planet. As in—by our own eyeballs, not just from some edited or “I get this” montage]
