I don’t think they actually move through the sky quite as quickly as they appear to… timelapse footage of several hundred hot air balloons launching at dawn, at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, held in the US state of New Mexico.

The perfect way to watch a storm, on video

Tuesday, 4 November, 2014

The best way to watch a storm, or in this case, a collection of them… on video, rather than outdoors, or in their vicinity, thanks to Nicolaus Wegner. You’ll also spot Wyoming’s Devils Tower, as seen in Close Encounters of the Third Kind… it’s quite spectacular here.

Paris, New York, New York, Paris

Tuesday, 4 November, 2014

An ad for an airline I know, but don’t let that stand in the way of what makes for a fine, side by side, comparison of Paris and New York City. I’ve been to one, I’m yet to visit the other.
