The untamed beauty of Isle of mull, Staffa and Ardalanish Scotland


Glorious Puffins

I never thought such nature still existed…
It is raw, foreboding, gentle, soothing, dramatic, cleansing…
Happiness is surrounding ourselves with such beauty at a moment’s notice and/or at every opportunity presenting itself to us.
The Highland cattle is quite a sight when arriving at Isle of Mull.
One can quickly become addicted to capturing the perfect shot. But in reality the setting is so right every angle is perfect.
A glimpse of Mull, #Iona, Staffa, Loch na Lathaich, #Oban and #Ardalanish is a glimpse in heaven.
Mull clenches your thirst for wildlife/#sealife beauty in an environment that has stayed intact and hopefully will go on so.
It is living nature in its true essence.

Tracks Movie CLIP #1 (2013) – Mia Wasikowska Movie HD


I watched this last night & found myself captivated by the simplicity & ingenuity of this film.
You forget about the complications we have created in our lives & get down to the core which is
simply living in the now & getting on with it.
All in all, it’s so refreshing to the soul that I would recommend everyone to see it 🙂

Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E01 – Belarus


This is an amazing BBC series on You tube that goes in six different parts of about 50 mn. each and are absolutely fascinating, there’s not one boring moment in them ( I have seen everyone of them) but as they’ve been put a copyright on, I can’t place them in this blog.

It goes from S03E01 to S03E06.

Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E01 – Belarus
Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E02 – Roger’s Rangers
Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E03 – Alaska
Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E04 – Namibia
Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E05 – Thailand
Ray Mears’ Extreme Survival S03E06 – New Zealand

There’s a huge amount of knowledge gained from it, captivating testimonies of survival and reconstructions of the stories with Ray Mears who is a brilliant reporter on survival skills around all these countries… it just transports you far away to the far corners of untouched wild life around the world.

Well worth relaxation time split into a few evenings 🙂

Dakuwaqa’s Garden – Underwater footage from Fiji & Tonga


For today… here’s a little corner of untouched paradise!
Wishing to all my fellow bloggers a very good weekend 🙂

Uploaded on Oct 4, 2011
Underwater footage shot whilst scuba diving in the Fiji islands and Tonga. Featuring colorful coral reefs, huge schools of tropical fish, sharks, humpback whales, underwater caves, scuba divers and much more marine life from the south Pacific.

Please “like”, favorite, share, or leave a comment here or on my channel at http://www.youtube.com/bubblevision. My Facebook page is at http://www.facebook.com/bubblevision and I have more scuba diving videos and underwater footage on my website at http://www.bubblevision.com, where you can also license rights managed and royalty free stock footage.

The coral reefs of the south Pacific are alive with a huge variety of tropical fish and marine critters. A great way to explore them is to scuba dive with the Nai’a liveaboard based in Fiji. I was working as the Nai’a’s video pro when I shot this footage. See http://www.naia.com.fj/

The underwater footage was shot in high definition HDV 1080i 60i with my Sony HVR-Z1P HDV camera in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing. The footage was converted to 720p for YouTube using my high quality method:

The Lion Ranger (s01e01) Kevin Richardson whole series (S01E02) and (S01E03)


This is a most spectacular three part video series I have ever seen and couldn’t wait to share with all of you.

I find them very relaxing in the sense that it transports the viewer to a totally different world and dimension which is the kingdom of animals in South Africa where Kevin Richardson rules as a master in their language and practically an equal in a lion’s pride.

Take time for a memorable evening with your family, a huge bowl of popcorn and a hot mug of cocoa or herbal tea 🙂
Let me know if it made you want to rush there and witness it with your own eyes!
That’s what it did to me but we’ll leave it in its right context… Of a dream.

Uploaded on Jul 13, 2011
Lions – some of the most dangerous animals known to society. BUT there is one man who is part of their pride. Kevin Richardson, an outdoorsman who lives just 30 miles north of Johannesburg, has an amazing ability to communicate with some of Africas most feared predators. His conservation area is home to lions, hyenas, cheetahs, leopards and panthers. He is able to live with them, sleep curled up with them, swim with lionesses, caress cubs and tussle with males. This exciting and touching series will take viewers on a journey to the stunning African wilderness, giving them an exclusive insight into the life of the real Lion Whisperer.
