A message in a bottle, found by a wise man, he travelled up the highest mountain, far above the clouds where he opened the bottle, as the cold wind blew upon the bottle she began to whisper to the wise man, a song of secrets. The wise man carefully lay the bottle down on the mountain top, where the wind would continue to blow, carrying the song far far away, across all the lands, and all the oceans. The wind blew and blew, her song reached deep into the darkest forests, into the deepest despair and lifted the minds of those lost souls as she slowly but surely lured them back home.
A parody and yet also a homage to Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells.

Chilly weather, the last of the sunshine as 2018 makes its departure into the winter. This video was shot on a DJI Spark piloted manually and edited in Luma Fusion on the iPad. The music is by Mike Oldfield from his Tubular Bells II, an album I absolutely love.
The area is the remains of a filled-in outdoor swimming facility that shut down many years ago, nature has taken over the concrete and a natural pond has formed in the shallow remains of the swimming pools. It is, as you will see- quite lovely.
