It’s one of my all time favorite songs. I watch their performance from the ’70s on Youtube almost weekly. Jimmy Page is a genius. I put this arrangement together to back a video taken from my DJI Phantom 3 Pro drone, mostly over Jordan and Moss Lakes here in North Carolina.
It was one of the best vacations that I’ve been on by my self. I had three days to drive around on the Selkirk loop in eastern British Columbia. I made a lot of stops and took lots of pictures, which I combined in a video that I produced a few weeks ago.
I like the music. Much of it was inspired by the cello music in the motion picture, Arrival. The music is called “On the Nature of Daylight.”
I played lots of music in lots of band back in the day and mostly I played keyboards. Sadly, I could never afford a Hammond B3 organ, which was the signature organ sound of the ’70s rock era. No that I’m using a computer to make my music, the B3 sound is at my finger-tips, if not literally pushing a vacuum tube based electronic instrument.
Anyway, this song was created to back a video where in which I features some of my favorite pictures of some of the best places I’ve visited during my years of travel on the speakers circuit.
This was probably the closet I’ve come to a bald eagle I was photographing. We were in a neighbor’s boat when these two guys started flying around us.

A series of Drone captured video clips taken during a foggy morning over Moss Lake, in North Carolina.
I caught this guy in the grass, saying, “Aaaaaah.” We were walking around the Magnolia Plantation and Gardens and caught lots of pictures of wildlife.

This was my first Paleated Woodpecker. He was working a tree above “Bubba Pond,” where bubba the giant alligator lives. I got lots of pictures that day wondering around the Magnolia Plantation and Gardens near Charleston, SC.

Of course, this photo came out almost completely dark. But with Lightroom, I was able to tweak out enough feature and then HDR the image so that there is some Charleston there. I’m especially fond of this photo.

These are photographs taken near, by or from above Moss Lake in Cleveland County, North Carolina. The music is original, “Bayou Breakdown #29526” – because 29,525 other songs have already be named “Bayou Breakdown.”
This video includes pictures from a three-day drive I took through the Selkirks, in British Columbia. My wife has commented that I need to leave the pictures up longer, so I have in this video. The music was inspired by Max Richter’s “On the Nature of Daylight” from the movie, “Arrival.”
