Landscapes: Volume II

An incredibly beautiful timelapse HD video.  Breathtaking physical landscapes of the "Four Corners" region in the U.S. southwest (mainly Arizona and Utah) with a smattering of cultural landscapes interspersed.  For many students, seeing a beautiful landform piques their interest to then understand the geomorphological processes that made them.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! These incredibly beautiful physical landscapes were gorgeous. With the help of the HD video it all felt so real and breath taking. While I was watching this video I was keeping in mind the thought of the geomorphological process but more importantly how I feel as though we take for granted to not see what else is out there in the country. I myself knew we live in a beautiful country but after watching this video I just grew much much more appreciation for the countries gorgeous landscapes. I also have saved this video because I believe it is so important to show to many others.

"Take a picture of a picture from the past in the present."

 

This blog is an great resource to show some urban historical geographies and changes to the landscape.  These photos demonstrate a more personal, emotional connection to places because of the memories and friendships made.  T\his archive of photos would also a great way to explore the theme of 'place' as it is often crucial to the photo and how we interpret that photograph.
