Our Planet: Atacama Desert

Once again, Martin Heck has done a great job in showcasing our planet on film. He’s back in Chile again, this time in the Atacama Desert. It’s been a while since we had a post in the Our Planet Series. In fact, the last one was back in January. However, this was worth the wait. As Heck comments on the YouTube page for this video, “[t]he Atacama desert is home to the darkest and cleanest... read more

Our Planet – The Best Bits II – Calbuco

It’s an amazing time lapse film of Calbuco Volcano (Chile), which erupted  on the night of 22 April 2015 and again the following morning, for the first time since the 1960s. Martin Heck and Jonas Dengler of Timestorm Films were there doing some other filming at the time, some of which I posted earlier this week: Our Planet... read more
