Video: In the Land of Emperors
This video takes us to the Canadian Rockies, where it attempts to give us a sense of scale by dropping humans into the landscape as a point of perspective. The results are often mind-blowing, as our brains begin to process just how immense the mountains, forests, rivers, and other natural wonders truly are there. I had a similar experience while visiting Alaska a few months back. The landscapes are of epic proportion, and it is impossible to convey that in a normal photograph. But this video does a valiant job of letting us know just how small we really are. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that those landscapes are also incredibly beautiful too.
