Autumn Ascension - Music Video + Autumn Aerial Photography and video editing tips!

Spectacular fall colors, cool seas of mist, towering mountains - their slopes jeweled with autumn finery. The last hurrah of nature before its winter slumber is a sight to behold throughout the Pacific Northwest.

This video is the culmination of two months of work, about a dozen hours of cumulative flight time, over a week of editing, 3 rough drafts, and numerous re-shoots. The song is "Ascension" by Miracle of Sound, which I selected mid-way through the filming process, a selection which dramatically increased the complexity of the project as it demanded that I match my visual story with that of the song.

#NatureWritingChallenge: Public Lands Wish List

At present our public lands are in a state of near constant peril and crisis, and it is hard to think beyond defending them today and imagine what the future could look like for these treasured wild places. However, I think it’s important that as we fight in the metaphorical trenches it is important to keep in mind the goals and dreams for public land. What our good fight will mean for future generations.
