Once in a while we feature something that is a treat for the senses: no big message necessarily, just a creative enterprise that inspires wonder.

But really… isn’t that enough sometimes?

Take a short, remarkable journey with us today through The Himalayas From 20,000 Feet from the scientific group Teton Gravity Research.

Here’s what’s been said about this marvelous video:

The aerial cinema experts at Teton Gravity Research release the first ultra HD footage of the Himalayas shot from above 20,000 ft. with the GSS C520 system, the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system in the world. Filmed from a helicopter with a crew flying from Kathmandu at 4,600 ft. up to 24,000 ft. on supplemental oxygen, these are some of the most stable, crisp, clear aerial shots of these mountains ever released, which include Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse.” 2

Thanks for going on a little adventure with us today at Ever Widening Circles!

Stay curious, open and optimistic.
