Why I liked “Sailing in Antartica”

– It contained some of the same breathtaking natural beauty of “Southern Ocean Sailing (below) – and was very nicely done from a videographer’s perspective.

Why I Liked Southern Ocean Sailing

The awesome power and desolation of one of nature’s last human unencumbered regions seems to be well carried in the frames of this video. The video is devoid of any music tracks that could steal impact from the peace of the short clip. The chill of the bergs slowly passing the heavily bundled sailors was transmitted through the eyes and to the skin of this viewer. Many music tracks on Youtube videos are copyright infringing, IMHO. I generally avoid videos that carry music, as a matter of course. The lack of a music track was one of the reasons this particular, non-infringing video found its way onto my list. We can thank a handful of New Zealanders for the magnificent footage (they call themselves Kiwis).

Why I liked SuperVeggie …

Bhavna does a great job of explaining how to make some types of food that many of those born in America are not familiar with. I’m not certain whether or not Bhavna was herself born in America, but she certainly has a very down-home persona that is very helpful as she educates viewers with her well done videos. This woman’s channel has over thirty one million views!!

On my list to see:

Coming in October – Robert Redford in “All is Lost” – a tale of a solo sailor in the Indian Ocean, and shown with good reviews at Cannes…

Here is a descriptive link:
