Everyone who loves images - Frans Lanting's LIFE: Journey thru Time

This linked site requires use of Flash 7, but I hope that dial-up folks can receive the images...

If you love photography, if you love this Earth, if you love anything -- you will love this "Journey through Time" slideshow. (turn on your speakers -- the background music is a wonderful part of the experience.)

http://www.lifethroughtime.com/experience.html

Excerpt: "...I sank waist-deep into a lagoon for an eye-level view of a water lily blossom spreading its petals, just as its ancestors have done for nearly 140 million years. Water lilies are among the oldest lineages of flowering plants. Prior to the evolution of flowers, most plants relied on wind to disperse their pollen. Flowering plants replaced the scattered approach with a targeted partnership between themselves and the animals who became their pollinators."

After watching it at least once, watch again and click on the images that most attract you for information about the subject and location as well as how the photographer feels they fit into the theme.

I watch again and again -- I am mesmerized and awe-struck...

Breathtaking and peaceful all at the same time. The music was eerie; and I ended up turning off the sound. I can, however, see how the music fit the theme and could, if you like this kind of stuff, enhance one's viewing pleasure.
