Speed Flying Mont Blanc: VIDEO


Happy Mother's Day! Please begin your morning with something beautiful -- such as this video of several "speed flyers" descending Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps. It's a ten-minute video, in which the speed flyers descend from a height of 4,304 meters to a height of 930 meters. The descent is captured in a single, continuous, and unceasingly gorgeous take, which is one of the greatest cinematographic feats I know of.

Watch AFTER THE JUMP. In full screen, preferably on a large-ish monitor with decent speakers.
