The mountains won’t remember you

I really enjoyed Peter McKinnon‘s video titled “The Mountains Won’t Remember Me” for a few reasons. To begin with, his photography is awe inspiring. The video was created from a shoot in Banff, Canada. It’s probably one of the most beautiful regions I’ve every seen, albeit through McKinnon’s video.

The mountains, the hills, and the rivers in this video are idyllic. If I could live anywhere in the world, I’m pretty sure I’d want to spend most of my time there.

I also appreciated the central premise of the video – the enduring nature of these mountains, and their utter indifference to our day to day struggle to stand out, and be noticed.

More than 40 hours of ambient nature sounds from Planet Earth 2

Jason Kottke pointed out that BBC Unplugged has released four fantastic videos that run to 10 hours each. They contain footage shot for the BBC’s Earth 2 series along with a range of ambient nature sounds.

If you are looking for something relaxing you can run on your TV while you work or do things around the house (or office), you will probably love this. My favourite, so far, is the Mountain Sounds video:

Here is the YouTube playlist with the whole set:
