Nothing you haven't seen before - nice timelapse from the ISS. However, if you have a BIG monitor, this one is available in full 4K in your normal YouTube player (2160p)

And after the calm Japanese powder surfing, some wicked Utah ice climbing

Epic snowboarding footage from New Zealand, and a guy with the right attitude.

This guy is amazing - all real light painting, stop motion action, not some cheesy computer graphics overlay. More of his work at http://www.dariustwin.com/

I tried to write some things on longer exposures in the past while in the mountains, and usually failed miserably. No idea how one can do what he did here:

Pretty amazing light art. I tried rapid play-pause mouse-clicks and can see the human form behind the light at times. Footprints in the sand are fun, too.

But he has to be quite an artist to draw the figure with light over and over again and have it turn out so realistic.

Yes, I also found that a few frames still had remnants of person behind the lights.

another sweet skateboard movie - the photographer in me just kept thinking how much expensive gear they rented to shoot this little clip.

one for fans of slow motion footage - totally qualifies as a "cool video" just based on the way it was made:

"This is a real video, a slow motion video, a sequence map with a traveling in front of 80 extras placed on 80 meters along a little road, lost in an industrial area. Filmed at 1000 frames/second with a camera (Phantom 4k) from a car driven at 50km/h, the shooting took 5 seconds for a 3'30 video: a living and dreamlike mural."

Fishmonger: 5 seconds you say? I'll bet they practiced a lot more!

Here's one that took way more time than 5 seconds.

Something totally different: NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory has been recording what our sun has been up to for the last 5 years or so.

Would have been interesting if they had provided a narrative with details as to the nature of the solar events: Flares,size, power, etc...
I think the Sun is ~1.3 million times the size of the earth (by volume), so even the smallest of the flares would totally engulf the earth. And, our sun is not a particularly big star.

I'm not really sure why I like this video - it mostly shows what our oil dollars do when pumped into the desert - it's just the way this was done technically, the video just "flows"
