Last month I posted a blog about the Banff Mountain Film Festival and included links to the website of Australian photographer and filmmaker Murray Fredricks. I ordered a DVD of his film Salt, which was shown at this year's festival. I've watched it several times; I think about it all the time. Fredericks has created a film where the stars, light, time, space, being and nothingness converge in an almost hallucinatory atmosphere. This is a beautiful and haunting film.
   As is the "bonus" short film called Iridium (included on the DVD).  One of my alert cloud-loving blog fans in Bellingham was kind enough to send me the YouTube link to the film.  Click Here to watch it and take in the splendor of the skies.
