The night tree


the-night-tree

Still very busy with the tree collection.
I have used here oil painting and extra strong gel medium to bring the tree to life. I love working with texture for specific effects on certain project.

Trees, sometimes especially at night make life beautiful and in a sense are even more alive.
This is a reminder that We are lucky to be surrounded by them day in day out!

Best wishes for a safe warm winter to all of you!

Words might not suffice
Should not compromise
The blissful walks
And peaceful talks
In a world of sand and dunes
Where wind and waves rule

BBC Documentary – The Magical Forest (HD) (not an ordinary documentary!)


…And that is why we preserve it with all our might 🙂
This is a documentary worth persevering till the end, it is relaxing, hopeful, informative it shows us nature as interconnected. A unique network system, each one relying upon the other for its survival.
It teaches us the miracle of life in all forms, its delicate balance, the necessity & importance for every seemingly insignificant role played (by the word we have started to take too much for granted having heard it so often pronounced) in a perfectly designed Eco-system.
You will not regret watching it 🙂

A display of nature’s beauty and perfection I wanted to share with all of you!
Enjoy it 🙂

http://www.keepturningleft.co.uk for more bird films. The starlings are an astonishing thing to see – Near Oxford – England. This was filmed at an RSPB reserve called Otmoor. It is the most remarkable thing I have ever seen – and as a video camerman I have seen some pretty amazing things.

The music is from a companny called CSS Music. The track is “soaring with the sun” – .

I have just received this

Hi, Dylan. I got your contact information from your beautiful YouTube video published in February 2007.

Audubon Magazine published a wonderful article about starling flock behavior earlier this year: http://www.audubonmagazine.org/featur…
.
My favorite segment from the article:

Like drivers on a freeway, starlings dont appear to mind having neighbors nearby on their sides—or above and below, for that matter—as long as they have open space ahead. That makes sense, since the presence of a clear path in the direction of travel minimizes the likelihood of collisions should the birds need to shift their course abruptly, as is likely when a falcon attacks. But whats really nifty about this spatial asymmetry is that the researchers have been able to use it to calculate the number of neighbors to which each starling pays close attention—a quantified elaboration of Pottss chorus line idea. By looking at correlations between the movements of neighboring starlings, they can show that each bird always pays attention to the same number of neighbors, whether theyre closer or farther away. How many neighbors is that? Six or seven, says Cavagna, who points out that starlings in flocks can almost always see many more nearby birds— but the number may be closely tied to birds cognitive ability.

The direction of the flock can be coordinated by each birds tracking six or seven other birds. Remarkable. This is a very different kind of cognitive skill.
