Heaven: amazing footage of Galapagos, on the rocks & in the sea


Galapagos 2010 from Darek Sepiolo on Vimeo.

If you don't have 6 minutes, take it a minute or 2 at a time.

60 second therapy doses: so soothing...

Even just the shot of schooling fish,
after the first bit of shark footage,
is unlike any I've seen.


And, may I just say, that unlike SO many films of nature, this one represents what is going on out there most of the time? Stuff (wildlife) hanging out, sunning, swimming, grazing. If THIS is what people saw on TV, I don't think they'd be so afraid of nature and wildlife.

If all you know of nature and wildlife you learn from TV, vs. actual time out there, you'd think it's all charging bulls, giant snakes striking at you, lions ripping at entrails, etc.

While of course, those things do happen, it's a TINY percentage of the time. Most the time, animals are just like us (animals, too). Doing their version of hanging out, commuting, chatting with friends, snacking, snoozing, grooming, cleaning, etc.

Life is not a cage match.

Just sayin'... =)
