1. Howard Hall (howardhall.com) took me up for a flight in his ultralight experimental trike over Anza Borrego Desert on December 29, 2012. We flew across the desert to the Salton Sea and back. I love ultralights; his flies as slowly as 60 MPH, and a view of terrain from above is always enlightening.

    Footage was taken with a Sony RX100 at 1080/60p, 28Mbps, and is unmodified aside from transcoding to 720/30p H.264, 5-7Mbps for web upload.

  4. When I was on the Sea Shepherd boat in Antarctica during 2009/2010, I captured an unusual sequence of images: a sequence of an iceberg arch collapsing. I literally raised my camera to my eye (Canon 1D Mark II w/70-200/2.8L lens), and the arch collapsed. I mashed the shutter button down and captured 20 frames—in bursts. I shot in bursts because I was afraid that the buffer wouldn't hold.

    Later, I pulled the frames into Motion and created this video.
