1. Chinook is a native Indian word used for foehn winds on the lee side of mountain ranges and particularly used in the northwest Pacific region. It is characterized by strong and unusually warm winds, often with a sudden and drastic temperature increase at onset. Another common feature is a Chinook arch which is a stationary band of clouds caused by a wave generated by orographic lifting of air passing the mountains. In front of the Chinook arch is a region of sinking air, giving a strip of clear sky which allows for outstanding sunrise/sunset displays under the arch. That's where Fairbanks sits when southern winds are forced across the Alaska Range. Before the Chinook set in, interior Alaska had been in a deep freeze for two weeks with temperatures averaging about -40F/C. The warming came gradually over a few days, topping at about +50F/+10C later this day.

  2. A short subject shot in the jungle area of Onomea Bay, Hawaii. I'm inspired by the rich colors and textures of the plant and animal life here. Shot with a Canon XHA1 and edited with Final Cut Studio 2. No color correction. Just a quick cut that seems to calm my baby boy. Enjoy. Aloha

  5. This is a visual experiment based on water timelapsing.

    The basic idea and challenge was to timelapse water stream, which is a really difficult matter with this particular technique, and still get something interesting.

    So here is the result...
    Nothing spectacular happens, compared to classic timelapses, but it's simply beautiful, and that should be enough for you to take a look ;)

    Pictures were shot in french Alps region named Queyras, in summer 2007.
    Soundtrack has also been composed at that time, by Silvano Mercado, in one single afternoon...

    Enjoy and feel free to leave any comment.
