I'm one of those horrible humans who take nature for granted and recharge myself through indoor fluorescent lighting. I like walking city streets, I like going into city bars and I like eating city food. Feeling tires screech, hearing sirens wail, coming across unexplainable damp spots, that's all what I'm used to. But then I get a little taste of nature (through a Vimeo video on a computer indoors, no less) and wonder if I'm missing out on a whole magical part of the world. I probably am. You might be too.

This video, The Waters of Greenstone, by Nathan Kaso was shot over the course of three weeks around the South Island of New Zealand. It's stunningly beautiful, like seeing an untouched slice of nature. Kaso filmed at Catlins Forest Park, Fiordland NP, Queenstown, Mount Aspiring NP, Mount Cook NP, Arthurs Pass NP and Castle Hill Reserve.

It is epic. Maybe I should ditch the city's rat race and move to New Zealand.
