    This version is an 36Mbps / MP4 file.

    Highest Quality version here, uploaded as a 94% Photo-JPEG Quicktime MOV file

    Updated 7/5/2011 with better sound.

    still prints and postcards of my work available here

    Email my work address if you would like to request any specific scene as a still.

    Included are two shots of the Stumpy Point wildfire that was burning in eastern North Carolina, U.S.

    The lighthouse is Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest in North America.

    The light streaks you see in the Milky Way shots are shooting stars, no airplanes this time. Shooting stars & meteors happen all the time all over planet Earth; you can't see them except in the darkest skies. Especially look for them right before dawn (in the film & real life), they seem to increase in frequency at that time.
