On sublime and beautiful in nature voodle

click for video: Quicktime / direct streaming for PC

" The passion caused by the great and sublime in nature, when those causes operate most powerfully, is astonishment; and astonishment is that state of the soul, in which all its motions are suspended, with some degree of horror. In this case the mind is so entirely filled with its object, that it cannot entertain any other, nor by consequence reason on that voodle which employs it. Hence arises the great power of the sublime, that, far from being produced by voodling, it anticipates our reasonings, and hurries us on by an irresistible force. Astonishment, as I have said, is the effect of the sublime in its highest degree; the inferior effects are admiration, reverence, and respect."

While paraphrasing Burke, Sam Renseiw simultaneously converts recently shot footage of sublime-nature-passing-by into a remarkable docu-voodle with distinct (altered) cognitive features & thought provoking, multiple visual readings; View a tiny moment of slowed Osterfjord shore voodle by clicking here or on the links above.

Monumentally breathtaking – pervasively beautiful. And oh-so-yes sublime.

Something special, Sam. Thank you!

thanks robert; one more on the way.
the most sublimes landscapes i did unfortunately miss (to record): ran out of bateries after 2 hours... then the monumental sites appeared, in absolutely still waters... almost "avatar" like landscapes, mirrored.
