Slowing Down and Take Time to View Things Rapidly Disappearing in Nature

I stumbled upon a number of Nature videos by an individual named Louie Schwartzberg. He has a channel on YouTube called Moving Art, which is put to music, but for it really to be effect and deeply appreciated the videos had to be slowed way down in order for the viewer to be Moved in effect. The first one is called "Origins" and it simply reveals  'life's beginning' events in natural surroundings to music without comment. This allows whatever ideological worldview promoter to imagine, speculate, assert or assume any religious or other metaphysical belief in the order of events which took place countless milleniums ago for which the beauty of our planet which is now  rapidly disappearing as a result of the ignorance, stupidity, greed and selfishness almost every side of the argument who are themselves guilty of participating in irresponsible activity whether they are conscious of their bad choices or not.

This next one is on water H2O which is one of my favourite subjects. I love this. I've always found movement of water mesmerizing especially in a river or stream. This reminds me of the years I spent living in Idyllwild California in Fern Valley along Strawberry Creek. I've included a video of water in Yosemite CA which is actually an even better illustration of what I'm feeling here in expression - *smile*

This next one is the 2011 Bioneers Conference. His beautiful cinematography captures slow-motion Salmon, time-lapse mushrooms, and slime mold in Olympic National forest.

Here is one of my favourites with regards slow-motion pollinators found in our natural world where often things seem to happen at super warp type speeds for us humans and we just seem to miss so much of what is happening all around us. Some of it is hilarious especially the antics of the Hummingbirds.

This video was shown at the TED Conference in 2011, with scenes from "Wings of Life" which is the shortened version of a documentary by Disney Nature who also did a film documentary called "Pollen" which dealt with the real threats to ALL of our planet's pollinators by the use of Chemical Pesticides which can destroy these brilliant mechanisms which are essential pollinators that  sustains the fabric of life. Here is also a link to an informative website on pollination.

And finally a longer video entitled "Gratitude" which starts with the innocent expressions & observations of a young child for natural wonders which sadly most of our world's adults have lost.

Previous article or post dealt with parents responsibility to teach their kids about nature. There have been recent findings that show that what looks like child's play may actually be a scientific experiment.

Enjoy your Friday for a change. Take a moment and dump the Ideologue News items of Right-Wingers verses Left-Wingers and all other negativity our world's global News Media shoves in our faces because we let them. Take time to slow down and view things at a slow motion pace. Go out there on a nature hike and take time to appreciate many of the things you wondered about as a child which use to intrigue you so much before you discovered the reality of the adult world's incompetence at custodianship of our Earth. To get the most out of such a relaxing detour, you first need to dump your electronics or at least turn them off for a short time and enjoy a Friday for a change. Below is a Homepage link to other videos by Louie Schwartzberg. Enjoy!

MOVING ART by Louie Schwartzberg


  1. Wow - Way cool video's. I know it took time and talent to create the video's for others to enjoy free. Can't help but think of the Creator of the real thing and the time, talent and love it took for Him to design them for our enjoyment.

    1. I especially like the Hummingbird Video with what looked like it was playing with the BumbleBee.

  2. Thanks for sharing these videos and links. They are cool! Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. You are quite welcome. I'm glad someone like these people who've had the patience to photograph the way the have to slow things down for us to appreciate the great detail of amazing mechanisms found in nature.
