Eco Documentary: Fragile Cayman

Photo Credit: Michael Maes (Spotted Eagle Ray) Yesterday I had the privilege of watching an incredible Eco Documentary called Fragile Cayman directed and produced by Michael Maes, a fellow environmental enthusiast.  Michael  is also a diver and photographer extraordinaire, here in the Cayman Islands.  His short but powerful documentary, which was featured in the Cayman Islands Underwater Film Festival of 2012, is comprised of  absolutely stunning cinematography and a montage of incredible shots, which truly capture the essence and beauty of our ocean- specifically in Cayman waters.  The scene with the stingrays at Stingray City was just lovely! The Spotted Eagle Ray just gorgeous, my absolute favorite scenes. For me, it was like watching a silent movie, just a story told through motion pictures accompanied by instrumental music.  Watching the film you can’t help but question, why on earth would anyone not want to save the environment and protect the ocean.  Just watching the amazing footage you are completely mesmerized by the fundamental beauty that is our ocean and the marine life which resides there.  …

With love from one tree hugger to another xo….Happy Earth Day 2013

I hope everyone had a wonderful Earth Day Weekend! I love Earth Day! I hope everyone around the world will feel inspired to help make a difference in the world.  There is so much we can do to help save our planet.  Little things like choosing to recycle, reuse, and reduce will help make an impact.  We can do more, I encourage everyone today to help replenish the planet by planting a tree or some flowers today. I spent this morning doing just that 🙂 Alternatively, join your community in a beach clean up.   This quote speaks volumes.   Enjoy Earth Day! Give some love to the planet.  Have a beautiful day!   With love from one planet lover to another xo P.S.- Some great documentaries to watch with friends and family today. Trashed The 11th Hour

Swimming with sharks…

No I have never swam with sharks, though there are times I think it would be really awesome to be able to say that I have, as sharks are an amazing animal.  Last night I watched an incredible documentary called “Sharkwater” by Rob Stewart.  If you love sharks then I highly recommend that you watch it.  The cinematography was absolutely stunning!  The documentary captured so many fantastic scenic shots of sharks and other wildlife which inhabit the ocean.  One of my favorite scenes was watching one of the divers holding a shark and stroking the shark like you would  a dog.  The shark was completely docile.  It was just amazing to watch.  Another scene showed a school of hammerhead sharks, just awesome to see them swimming peacefully in the ocean. Sadly, sharks are being hunted resulting in the population of sharks being reduced by 90%.  During the time it took to watch the documentary over 15,000 sharks were estimated to have been killed, it just goes to show how rapidly the population of sharks are …

Gasland… a documentary about “fracking”

Last night I watched an amazing documentary called Gasland by Josh Fox.  I highly recommend watching it.  I learned so much about what is commonly known as fracking.  It is scary the amount of water contamination that is a result of fracking.  Josh Fox did an amazing job with this documentary. Here is the trailer for Gasland.  This movie can be rented/purchased on iTunes. Enjoy!
