Planet Earth – Mountains

Posted by lozenp on March 27, 2007

Watched part two last night of the Discovery HD Theater/BBC show Planet Earth. This show was “Mountains”. There were certainly some extremely cool scenes, including a snow leopard on the hunt on the side of a mountain. I was a bit underwhelmed by the video quality of this episode in some instances, however, I believe it was because most of the footage was shot from a helicopter at extreme zoom. With that in mind, it was understandable that some of the images were a bit soft at times.

That’s not to say that it was all soft. The shots of the Himalayas were amazing, as were the shots of animals that inhabit those mountains. It’s amazing how in nature all the animals work and live together. Snow leopards start a chase, and Golden Eagles count on some of those chases to end without a kill in order for them to finish off a tired and injured prey.

Anyhow, Ocean Deep is tonight (assuming I don’t fall asleep), I’ll let you know how it goes.
