Zerkowski Sheeffry Video
I am thrilled to have come back to the site after a few months of enforced absence to find that great things continue to be done on the hills. Peter Walker's Sheeffrys Track reminded me of my own wonderful day there and got me looking back at Critchley and Schwartz's magnificent film on YouTube . I see that there have been numerous uploads by all our top film makers and I am looking forward to seeing them all. In the context of the Sheeffrys I have to admit that I was just bowled over by Patrick Zerkowski's "Sheeffry Hills" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFoCugubcLY ). It's not just the amazing light but the camera work and the use of filters allowing shots with direct sunlight. I didn't want to be unfair to our other Spielbergs but I simply felt compelled to throw a quick montage together and suggest that you all purchase some popcorn and get watching asap.
Finally, may I say what fantastic photographs Aidy has uploaded. There's a surreal air about them, as if Salvador Dali was asked to capture a Spanish landscape, but in a way that suggested something quite mysterious was going on. I keep looking at them and wondering "What is it?" especially the middle of the three.
