I just stumbled upon this amazing timelapse video of the Himalayas in Nepal. Some cool shots demonstrating how quickly the weather can change, and an overall high quality video worth checking out. Filmed on the Annapurna Circuit and Tilicho Lake in Nepal.
Espen Fadnes flying down a mountain wearing a squirrel suit in Norway
A cool video of a guy base jumping in Norway. They have all sorts of cameras strapped to him and setup around the area of the jump, as well as microphones so you get the full experience. He's also wearing a squirrel suit which allows him to control how fast and where he goes. The video runs through the jump from planning to execution and review, very cool if you're into skydiving, base jumping, or extreme sports in general.
A boy running through the cherry trees in Afghanistan
My friend sent me a link to this really cool Afghanistan video focusing on day to day life in the war torn country. I hate it when media ruins public perception of a country, and while I have yet to visit Afghanistan, I'm confident real life for most of the 34 million people living there is closer to what we see in this video. It's really well done, HD full screen this bad boy and have a look.
Found this Iceland video of the Midnight Suns recently and thought it was really cool. It's a bunch of small time lapse shots around Iceland during the summer when the sun barely goes down at all. Iceland has some gorgeous scenery, and the video is really well done.
A screen cap from the video showing Planet Earth from outer space
A time lapse video taken by Expedition 28 & 29 from the International Space Station during the months of August to October, 2011. You can clearly see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) as the station crosses over the top of the Earth. Because of the Earths constant rotation things look a bit different than we're used to on the map, it's tough to make out what countries you're looking at (when the clouds aren't hiding the ground), but I was able to identify a few regions. The person who posted this video claims they didn't do anything to edit colors or anything similar, it's strange to see the atmosphere so clearly visible, very cool.
There are a lot of videos out there both climber made and commercial of Everest, Everest Base Camp, and the entire Himalaya Region. I spent a lot of time searching online and these were the highlights I came up with. Sadly there has been a lot of tragedy on the mountain over the years, so some of the videos are quite sad, but there is also some amazing scenery, interesting facts, and heart warming stories portrayed in these videos. If you know of other good Everest videos please post links in the comments and I'll add them to the collection.
The Northern Lights have been on my list for a long time. I originally had them down as a Canada thing, but recently a friend of mine (from Finland) showed me this video of the Northern Lights filmed earlier this year in Lapland, Finland. It's an amazing video of an amazing phenomenon, so I figured I'd share it here.
Looking down the street of Paris on a cloudy afternoon
I came upon a website the other day which had some really cool videos, a couple of which took place in Paris. I thought they were worth posting here, and decided to look for more. Turns out there are a lot of really cool videos of Paris. Below are a handful of the best I found around the web, if you have any more please post links in the comments.
