I am so envious of people who know photography. I lack an artistic side and it shows not only in my pictures I take but my poor video editing. I have an attention span of a gnat and really should learn to take the time to read and learn more about how to be a better photographer and videographer. When I come across pictures of nature, animals of any kind that make an impression on me I feel I need to share them. #47 breaks my heart. Enjoy!
Culture Buzz Here’s a collection of the best animal photojournalism of the year. It was a sad, funny, but overall cute year for animal photos.
A macaque monkey in Indonesia took a camera from a wildlife photographer before snapping himself in a variety of poses.
The macaque monkey is extremely rare and critically endangered making these pictures all the more special.
Joe Lloyd and his wife Flora really produce such great ADV videos. I have posted these guys before and this is another installment of their trip to Barkerville which is located here in BC just north of Quesnel. Cheryl and I visited Barkerville this summer on the Triumphs.
We were told the back roads were closed so I find it amazing that Joe and his crew made up to Barkerville the back door way successfully. Nice adventure they all had riding through Likely.
If you ever come to BC you have to go visit this authentic Gold Rush Town. See below for more info! Enjoy and just so you know I have emailed Joe directly asking about DVD’s for any of his videos and they are thinking about it but for now just an online download for the full video on their website. Would anyone buy a DVD? Please comment…just curious because we would have all his travels.
CURBSYDE PRODUCTIONS ROAD TO BARKERVILLE PART 4
THIS IS A VERY COOL AND FUN VIDEO TO WATCH….LIKE A WHOLE MOVIE IN 8 MINUTES AND 30 SECS. REALLY WORTH WATCHING THE WHOLE THING … MAKE SURE HD IS ON AND WIDE SCREEN IS BEST.
Not trying to be POLITICAL but this relates to BLOGS like this! Make sure you watch the end if anything!
On our trip this summer I took a real keen interest in the cloud formations that we saw along our route from BC, the Yukon and Alaska. I would often take pics of the sky because of the many different clouds and colours we would see. Well, mainly dark clouds because the rain just loved to follow us for almost 12,000 KM. In any case here are a few pictures of new cloud formation that meteorologists have named Undulatas Aperatus. See link below. Has anyone ever seen skies like these? I find them just beautiful and mysterious in some kind of way.
Science Buzz Cumulus, nimbus, stratus, cirrus…asperatus? First “discovered” in 2009, scientists have finally named this dramatic and rare cloud occurence as Undulatus Asperatus.
The folks at DAKAR has posted a gift for everyone to see…the best of landscapes throughout the routes. They say this should be good enough until next year…what a race it was for 2012 if you followed the Dakar and this is a proper way to close….enjoy we did.
The best of peruvian, chilean and argentinian landscape that Dakar 2012 competitors have crossed!
it’s OVER! and it’s was KTM vs KTM in the end!
This has to be one of the best time elapse videos of ICELAND I have ever seen. Iceland would be such an intriguing place to ride a bike. Volcanic rocks, sand, unpredictable weather, landscape so unique and beautiful and such a small country. Another dream of ours to ride here! I have emailed the producer of this video Joe and he can not say enough about how beautiful Iceland is and that this country would be a bike haven to ride.
I have also been reading a few ride reports on the ADV forum that make Iceland as one of our dream destinations to ride. We have been warned about the wind in the South but other than that, mild temperatures in Summer and landscape that people swear you can only see while visiting this small beautiful country. Has anyone been here either riding or just to visit? Please let us know by commenting and even posting some pictures. This is a video that was made with a lot of determination and patience. Please watch the entire video the effort is commendable and the outcome is stellar.
