This video will give you a glimpse into the sights and sounds I recently experienced on a two day camping trip to Sedona, AZ. The music is a Native American Flute composition I recorded inside Lower Antelope Canyon (which is just outside of Page, AZ on the Navajo Indian reservation) a few years ago.
“After the Rain” is a tribute to the 11 young men and women who lost their lives in a tragic flash flood in that slot canyon on August 12, 1997.
All of the Sedona footage was taken with a Canon FS-100 camcorder using a tripod. This is a neat little palm sized camcorder which records to a secure digital card – it has a 45X optical zoom and a 80X digital zoom.
All I can say is that I am extremely happy with this camcorder! Check out the hummingbird (full screen mode is best here) which buzzes the hawk at the top of the cliffs – that’s at the 45X zoom…it starts at about 3:02 and runs to 3:08. The sounds are from two sources – the camera itself (which has a built in stereo mic!) and my little digital Edirol R-9 recorder….
Please rate and comment and let me know if you like these kinds of videos where I mix nature and my music.
I hope this video makes you feel as if you are actually in the middle of nowhere close to Nature.
