Eastern Skies

About 5 years ago I started getting into researching areas of the East Coast that have dark skies such as the western states. I was told it doesn't exist but I continued my search. I came across a small section of West Virginia called the Monongahela Nation Forest. There are only 2 roads that pass between towns that have 1 gas station and a small convenience store. Located 4 hours from Washington D.C., I knew I'd be doing a lot of driving. After a few years of scouting the locations on Google Earth and in person, I started shooting the spring of 2014. I was also focusing some time down at North Carolina's Outer Banks. Cape Hatteras is the most outer point of the famous OBX with very little light pollution, dark skies and amazing historic light houses. EASTERN SKIES was shot over a 10 month period or 2 full Summers / Falls. I battled some of the most extreme thunderstorms, insane fog, dew and anything else mother nature threw at me.

Betty Bomber Airplane Wreck - Truk Lagoon

The famous "Betty Bomber" wreck dive in Truk Lagoon is one of the must see dive sites when visiting Chuuk. Having been downed over 70 years ago, it remains in remarkably good shape. The lack of coral growth is due to it being made of aluminum. Take a few minutes and enjoy this piece of history.

Les Gardians: Stewards of the Camargue

Since the 1500's the men (and more recently, women) of the Brotherhood of the Camargue Horsemen have been tending to herds of horses and bulls in the unfenced coastal region of the Camargue in southern France. Working with the bulls and the beautiful white horses of the region is a noble tradition, but economic and social pressures are taking their toll on the professional gardians. And their way of life is becoming harder to maintain.

Great White Shark Attack - BBCs Planet Earth

10 Epic Facts About Planet Earth

India is blessed with rare and amazing wildlife and natural wealth

“Cat Jenga” is a Brand New Challenging Game for Feline Fanatics

If you’re cat lover and a Jenga master, then Cat Jenga might be the perfect new challenge for you. A Chinese company called “Common” has developed a brand new version of “Cat Jenga” by cleverly combining cutout kitty poses with the game’s precarious stacking challenge. Players have to balance the wooden cat-shaped pieces on top of one another, as high as they can, with the hope that the feline silhouettes don't topple over. However conventional Cat Jenga begins with a pile of blocks and builds from that, participants of Cat Jenga stack the figures from the ground up, expecting to place the last feline on the tower and become the winner. “Cat Jenga” isn’t completely new to the novelty-game market. It was released in China a few years ago, but it’s taken all that time to be released in the United States. Now, each set of 6 is available in either teak or maple wood, and each piece is a striking depiction of a cat widening, pouncing, climbing, and of course, sleeping. Therefore, more cats you have, the higher the tower climbs, and the more daunting task the game become.Source:

Freaky Flowers: Echinopsis Cacti in Bloom

A montage of a dozen types of “Echinopsis cactus” flowers blooming and showing off their incredible colors. Echinopsis cactus flowers bloom overnight and last for only a day. In reality, the most of flowers are at their peak beauty for an hour or two. That's what turned me from a cactus fanatic into a cactus photographer and the longing to try to protect some aspect of their freaky attractiveness. Prior to becoming an Echinopsis enthusiast a few years back, I had never owned a DSLR or image-video editing software. In the evening when it looks like a plant's flowers are about to bloom, I bring it indoors to image and most of the clips in this montage show just about 8 hours of change as the flowers open and bloom. A little more than halfway through the montage, there are a series of three clips showing different views of a 24-hour period in the life of a yellow-flowered 'Daydream' plant. Six flowers that opened the night before I started filming wilt to nothingness and another 4 flowers grow spectacularly and then open. This series of “Daydream” clips is followed by another three showing other types of flowers wilting. These extra wilting clips are also taken over a daylong period.
Therefore, the question the most often about of cactus flower still images and time lapses is whether I have "Photo-shopped" them, that is, have I used editing software to juice things up and create the flowers' intense colors. He further said, I do, of course, use Photoshop and Light room and other editing software.  Moreover, rather than using these tools to overstate reality, I actually use them to reduce the intensity of the colors my camera captures. I have reduced the color saturation in every time-lapse clip in this video by a minimum of 10% and some 'Cabaret' and 'Antimatter' by 30% or more in order to have something that wasn't just completely blown out. I hope you enjoy "Freaky Flowers" and visit where you'll learn more than you ever wanted to know about these cacti and also be able to reach me via a contact form should you wish.

Desert Wildflowers | A Journey through Joshua Tree National Park from Casey Kiernan / Joshua Tree

Timelapse and film of Desert Wildflowers, taken entirely in Joshua Tree National Park during the Winter/Spring of 2015.
Music: "River of Sky" Composed and performed by Jami Sieber (BMI 2013)
Join us at for Astro/Timelapse Workshops.
During the Winter & Spring of 2015, I spent many days camping and traveling thru Joshua Tree National Park, filming the amazing splendor of Spring as it unfolded. During the month of April, at the height of wildflower season, I was in the park almost every day - and night.
With the help of the "Mojave Desert Wildflowers" guide (Pam MacKay), and a map of the Park, I set out to explore as many regions (micro-climates) as I could find - each one hides its own special collection of springtime delights. I would come back to each spot, week after week, to find different colors and different blossoms. As I set my equipment up to film the blossoms, the Hummingbirds would show up like they owned the place. They didn't care that I was filming, they were hungry!
For the plant names in the film, I met with some Botanists at Joshua Tree National Park - James, Katy & Evan. Thanks - There are over 700 plant species in the park - so identification can be a challenge!
Spring also announces the arrival of the Milky Way in the night-time sky. It appears very late in the night as first, but as the weeks progress, it appears sooner and sooner. Out East in the park is where the darkest skies are found - which is also where you will find Arch Rock.
While it is impossible to showcase every spring wildflower in just 5 minutes, I tried to fit in as many clips as I could. There are many more sequences on my hard drives. Maybe I should create a Desert Wildflowers - Part II - Let me know!
All footage (video and timelapse) was taken using a Canon 5D III on Kessler CineDrive Motion-Control equipment. My lenses include: Canon F2.8 16-35mm, Canon F2.8 70-200mm II, Rokinon F2.8 14mm and featuring the amazingly super sharp Canon F2.5 50mm Macro.

The Volcano Ride

This is a film about the spectacular scenery experienced when mountain biking the trails on the island of La Palma. La Palma is special in many ways, most notably due to the fact that the landscape is dominated by volcanoes, the highest being Roque de los Muchachos at 2426m. For mountainbikers this means endless trails in a beautiful scenic landscape with high contrast, the black and sometimes bronze / red rock formations, the blue skies, green vegetation and blue sea.
Riders: Harald Doucha, Philipp Heck, Andreas Höfner and myself
Enjoy the MTB trails of La Palma and let me know what you think! Share it with your friends too if you like it!
Music "Full throttle" by Generdyn, licenced from The Music Bed
Shot with a DJI Phantom 1 quadcopter, two GoPro Hero 4's, two GoPro Hero 3's, a Lumix GH4 and a Lumix GH2.
Special thanks to Philipp Heck (also here on vimeo, have a look at his films) who carried the quadcopter throughout the 4 days on his back on the bike, just fuelled by the thought of getting good aerial footage. Due to the strong winds at the high altitudes (up to 2400m) he was risking his equipment just to get the one shot!
