Some amazing 5D mk ii nature videos

by planetmitch3 Comments

Ok, we just can't stop with these videos! The list of videos we'd like to post but haven't yet gotten around to is about 30 items in length. But these were so good, we couldn't wait. This particular post is all about nature.

We highlighted Michael Fletcher's videos a few days ago, but we've found yet another stunner (especially when seen full size – remember to be a Vimeo member and download the video).

Christian and I found a couple of days spare to visit Karijini National Park in the North West of Western Australia after a shoot for Rio Tinto. We picked up a straggler in the form of Mark Stothard from

Christian, Mark and I braved the excessive heat and extremely dangerous conditions to capture some of Karijini's awesome beauty.

All types of equipment was used on those two days including, Canon 5D Mk2's, 1Ds Mk3's, Canon TS-E 24, TS-E 45mm tilt shift lenses, Canon 24mm, 50mm, 85mm, 300mm, 400mm etc.etc.

A special thanks to Matt at Canon and Ben at Team Digital for supplying some of the gear used in this production.

Christian is a bit slow so some of his amazing stills haven't reached his blog yet but keep tuned on and

Music again was from “Passion” by Peter Gabriel.
(Thanks Pete)
