Any member of the U3A Photography Group interested in joining me at a performance of "Chasing Ice"?  The ultimate use of time lapse photography!

Chasing Ice (12A)
Director: Jeff Orlowski
Starring: James Balog
USA, 2012, 1 hour 20 minutes

A phenomenal, passionate, unpreachy doc this provides insanely beautiful evidence of man-made climate change through time-lapse photography of the rapid retreat of the world?s glaciers. Twenty years ago National Geographic photographer James Balog was skeptical about climate change, then he started photographing ice. Now he?s a man on a mission, setting up the Extreme Ice Survey a huge global project to remotely film the glaciers? rapid disappearance using custom-built cameras designed to withstand 200mph winds and temperatures of minus 40 degrees. Thanks to the fabulous photography of the ice in all its glorious shapes and colours melting and constantly changing shape this is both extremely beautiful and extremely scary bringing home the reality of climate change like nothing I?ve ever seen. If a single picture is worth a thousand words then Chasing Ice tells volumes.

I am certainly planning to go to this Geoff and nearly went for tickets on Wednesday but run out of time.

Personal preference is for the 5-30pm viewing on Friday 15th Feb ?

Be worth posting in the Sci-Tech section which is the normal home for the Geology fans with Graham Goodeve as Group Leader?
