As some of the more loyal readers of this blog might remember, last summer I made an epic trip to Ibiza. It was a trip that changed my way of viewing the world. I believe this island has magical powers and the energy you’re exposed to there truly changes a person. (If you want to read the original post click here.)
Fast forward a year plus, and today I had the surprise to find a nice treat in my email, from my friend Nathan Dappen. Nate is a biologist, photographer and filmmaker based in Miami, Florida. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in evolutionary biology and behavioral ecology in the Department of Biology at the University of Miami. Nathan is devoted to our planet and the creatures in it. That includes us humans too, that’s why along with his partner Neil Losin, the’ve created Days Edge Productions with the goal to take you inside science and nature, from research laboratories to untamed wilderness. I invite everyone to check out their fun and quirky videos set against some of the most idyllic backdrops imaginable.
You can have a taste of the kind of natural beauty I am referring to in the images below taken by Nate last summer while my boyfriend and I visited him. Thanks Nate for making me relive the amazing summer of 2010 and I look forward to returning to the wilderness vicariously through your videos.
