As we approach New Years, publications are spinning out top 10 to top 100 lists at rapid speed. TIME.com has an impressive array of them. The Awl has put together the 15 most delightful Internet films of 2011.
Two of them struck me; through time-lapse photography, they offer a sense of the scale and wonder of the world. (Both are worth watching in full-screen mode.)
The first is by Terje Sørgjerd and is called "The Mountain." Take a look at 00:32 to see the Milky Way through a sandstorm.
The first piece is much more appealing. It shows the beautiful landscapes on this planet, something we can all relate ourselves to. One feels close to nature and the sky fascinates as it's so remote.
The second piece shows the earth from above. Everything is so far away and keeping the distance to life and mankind, one feels a bit lost.
Its beautiful, really amazing. I like the first one the most
Happy new 356 to all
WOW! HOW BEAUTIFUL!!! It's something all us living humans, animals, plantes, etc.. share. And we really need to take care of it.
I love this!!! God has made such a beautiful masterpeice in our Earth. This is just another example of how our planet is so important and we need to take care of it.
Reminds me of the film "Koyaanisqatsi"
such a small but beautiful bubble that we been having a hard time to share.
