Out and about on the Moraine

Glacial Moraine from Hal Schmitt onVimeo.

A quick video shot from the highpoint of a glacial moraine in AK.  This is the far end of the moraine I discussed in yesterday's post.

We had intermittent showers throughout our trip ashore as you can see on the lens and hear.  Regardless of the weather, the landscape and scenery were pretty cool.  I found the most interesting part of this area to be that the landscape was completely fractal.  Regardless of scale, there were similar features.  For example, the glacier and its moraine were very similar in appearance to the small water flows and deposits of glacial silt. 

I will put up a few more videos from this location and other spots around the area. 

Video was shot with a Canon 5D Mk II and EF 24-70mm f/2.8L.  I processed very minimally in Adobe Premiere Pro.

I make a plug in the video for the best photography pants I have found.  They are made by a company called Crye Precision.  Crye makes combat and field gear without equal.  The best thing about the pants is they have ten pockets distributed along your entire leg.  One of the things I most miss about wearing a Navy flight suit everyday is the lack of useful pockets in normal clothing.  The lower leg pockets on the Crye field pants are perfect.  Crye is not bashful about charging a good amount for their gear but you get what you pay for.

Check them out at Crye Precision.
