A Malfunctioning, Flaming Wind Turbine Is Actually Quite Beautiful

Video: It’s unfortunate when a wind turbine, which can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to build and install, malfunctions and breaks down. But sometimes the results can be quite beautiful, particularly when there’s fire involved and those massive blades keep spinning.

Watch This Magical Drone Footage Of Castles Across Europe

Video: Sorry, I still have a Game of Thrones hangover, so when I watch this beautiful drone footage that gives sweeping views of castles across Europe, I see the map of Westeros in the opening credits come alive. Some of these castles are in ruins, some are near rivers, some are on islets, some are embedded on the mountain side but all are impressive strongholds that hold so much history.

Swimming In A Vortex Of Sardines Looks Quite Beautiful

Video: There’s nothing I want more in the world than to be surrounded by so many sardines in the ocean that it looks like you’re stepping into a magical vortex that will transport you to another dimension. Which means, I need to book a ticket to the Philippines, drive to the airport, figure out how to get to Moalboal, Cebu, rent a scuba mask, take a deep breath, and then dive into the ocean.

Mirrored Footage Of Giant Soap Bubbles Is Better Than An Acid Trip

Video: The same soap bubbles that fascinated you as a toddler can be just as engaging when you’re all grown up. They just need to be super-sized, filmed in glorious 4K and then manipulated in post-production with a mirror effect that turns them into undulating alien-like blobs. Cue up some Led Zeppelin and let your mind go to mush during your lunch break.

Seeing Dolphins Swim In Glow In The Dark Waters Is Beyond Stunning

BBC’s Attenborough’s Life That Glows is an absolutely gorgeous look at the mysterious creatures around the world that have bioluminescent powers. It details the life of fireflies, glow worms, fungi, fish, squid, plankton, etc. and shows how they use their glow in the dark abilities. Sometimes it’s to attract mates, sometimes its to prevent predators from eating them, and other times, well, other times scientists still haven’t figured it out. It’s awesome.

Gorgeous Shot Of An Espresso Being Poured From The Machine

Video: I don’t even drink coffee but after seeing an espresso shot get pulled through a naked portafilter on an espresso machine, it’s the only thing I want in my life. Watching the water swish through the finely ground coffee beans and seep through each hole, and seeing the various flows group together to form that golden brown liquid of the gods. Man oh man, it’s like being around to see a superweapon charging up.

Brilliant Short Film Tells The Memories Of A Family With A Tour Of Their Empty Home

Video: This short film, Hiraeth by Trent Jaklitsch, is absolutely wonderful. Without seeing any actors and without seeing any relationships on screen, you’re still able to develop an emotional attachment to the family through a tour of their empty home. Each room represents a memory in their life, and hearing those memories and feeling their progression through the stages of life gives you a glimpse into their world. It’s such a beautiful and intimate way to remember what once was.

Lovely Animation Illustrates Life Using Different Clever Circles

Video: It’s the circle of life! Well, not quite but sort of. This great short animation from production company Chromosphere highlights the world we live in and the worlds beyond our world through the clever use of circles. Right smack dab in the middle of the frame, watch as the circles transform into animals and planets and space objects and natural phenomena and the human body and more. It’s a really well done animation.

Being Above The Clouds In New York City Is A Magical Place

Video: New York City is a special place. In the morning, when the city wakes up. At night, when it doesn’t sleep. On the grid, in the park, next to the water, across the boroughs, in the bars, on the corners, it all adds up to the best city in the world. Here’s a great view of New York City, this time from above the clouds.

Paddleboarding Among Icebergs

Video: When it’s cold outside, I don’t even want to go out. But there is beauty in the winter stillness and there are people who can brave the cold and enjoy it. Here is a portrait of Karol Garrison paddleboarding Lake Michigan while ice surrounds him. It’s so peaceful out there.
