a history/geography teacher once told me that if you stared at maps long enough you’d start seeing things you never thought where there and the more you looked, the more you’d see.
as i was maybe ten years old at the time the gent’s probably not around anymore but if he was i’d tell him it works with all sorts of things, notably water.
i’d also tell him how much his influence, not only in maters of maps but on myriad subjects, has stayed with me since and have made me, at least in my mind, a better person. i guess i’d tell him i love him too.
another trout season, the shift from winter to spring, from dark to light, one flow flowing, opening into another.
making itself special for opening day.
my take on Lynch’s film is that it’s a nightmare of a nightmare but whether that’s true or not is irrelevant in regards to today’s watery image.
there is however a connection in that nightmare within a nightmare or dream within a dream concept but then, maybe that’s just me.
at first it might seem like some computer generated imagery created for a sci-fi flick but you know, nature doesn’t need any artifices to be dramatic, thought-provoking, beautiful, awesome and just plain cool. enjoy !
“This video is being shown at normal speed. For those who have not witnessed an event like this in person, it may look as if the video is sped up. Some ice stacking events move more slowly, especially when the wind is weaker or intermittent. The large sheets of ice shown in this video had pretty good momentum from sustained winds, but at one point the ice came to a groaning halt and the silence seemed almost deafening; it was a little eerie. Then the breeze picked up and the ice was on the move again, stacking plates.”
