Quote from: Geoffw on February 08, 2013, 08:19:22 amAny member of the U3A Photography Group interested in joining me at a performance of "Chsing Ice"? The ultimate use of time lapse photography!Chasing Ice (12A)Director: Jeff OrlowskiStarring: James BalogUSA, 2012, 1 hour 20 minutesA 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.?As watchable as it is important.? New York Times
