Great video from our friends at the Overpass Light Brigade! #wearewater ...

“We Are Water” in multiple languages, as expressed in this new video collaboration between MN filmmaker Dusan Harminc and the Overpass Light Brigade. We’ve been shooting this for the last month in various locations throughout Wisconsin, and hope to highlight the power and beauty of the natural environment. Think of it as a “love song to water." WATER IS LIFE! Special thanks to artist Haley Bonar for granting us permission to use her beautiful song, "Eat for Free." ***For best effect, turn on your HD button when viewing*** #WeAreWater

Rivers are amazing. ...

Gorgeous shot of New River Gorge National River in West Virginia. The river supports a broad array of native fish [many found nowhere else], mussels, crayfish, rare amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. The park encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the river, so there are spectacular scenic and recreational opportunities.
