Beautiful Video Of Beautiful Birds Flying In Slow Motion

Birds being able to fly is Mother Nature’s ploy to make us all jealous. There are few cooler abilities in the real world. What else even comes close? Being able to hold your breath really long? Change colours? Grow back a chopped claw? Flying tops them all. Here’s a collection of birds flying in slow motion just to make you even more jealous.


Video: Watching A Person Write Calligraphy Is Basically Therapy

This whole short, Ink by Ryan Couldrey, focuses on Tanja Tiziana and the journey of rediscovering the long lost (ok, not quite long lost but soon/almost/eventually) art of calligraphy and just handwriting in general. Though dripping in a little too much ink at times, it’s always so nice to see someone write. The effect — hearing the scraping, seeing the ink flow — can almost be therapeutic.


Northern Lights Over Newfoundland Make Me Happy To Be An Earthling

These stunning images of the northern lights were captured by astrophotographer Adam Woodworth in L’anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland — the only confirmed Viking settlement in North America — on the night of 22 June and the early morning hours of 23 June.


The Algerian Sahara Looks Stunning From Orbit

When you think “Sahara desert” your mind’s eye probably conjures images of tawny, windswept dunes stretching monotonously into the horizon. But satellites have a way of giving us a strikingly different, often much more interesting view of our world.


Stunning Full Colour HD Video From The ISS Shows Life On Earth In Motion

This video is taken from space. And yet we can see so much detail on Earth that it’s almost unbelievable. Cars are driving on roads and buildings are moving throughout the day and boats are crawling through rivers, remember this isn’t your run of the mill drone footage, this is all taken from an ultra-HD camera mounted on the ISS.


A GoPro's Oddly Soothing Fall From Orbit

Blasting out of Earth’s gravity well and into orbit seems like it’d be anything but a calming experience. The first few minutes of the descent back home, however, are downright soothing.


This Collection Of Slow-Motion Scenes Is So Stunning It Stops Time

Paul Wex’s Interrupt is an absolutely beautiful look into people and life in southeast Asia. It’s filmed entirely in slow motion with a vintage 35mm OM Zuiko lens on a Canon 5D Mk3 and the footage of random daily life is peaceful and serene and stunning and unreal. Its like the video has stopped time to showcase life.


This Floating Flower Garden Is Like A Magical Dreamland Forest

This beautiful floating flower garden would be such a wonderful place to get lost in. That’s because it’s like a dreamland that’s come to life. Over 2300 flowers are ‘floating’ in the garden, and they’re all alive and blooming and growing. It’s an incredible sight to see them rise up and down while being planted to seemingly nothing.


This Gorgeous Picture Of A Lonely Cloud Pouring Water Is Unreal

Briefly: I can’t believe this picture is real and not a frame from a movie about a very unlucky guy. It was shot by Australian scientist Huw Alexander Ogilvie when he was flying over the Pacific Ocean back in 2005. You can get a high resolution version here.


Good Afternoon, New York

Video: There have been countless movies and time lapses and short videos made about New York and yet I can watch new ones about the city forever because they somehow never get old. Here’s one that I like by Tucker Prescott which shows New York City around the turn of the New Year. It captures all aspects — tourist spots, the streets — of the city pretty well.
