The Edge of the Earth

I love this. I’ve watched it literally dozens of times since it was uploaded, because my wee boy enjoys it so much (he likes planes and especially float planes). He knows the soundtrack off by heart now and when he hears any of it on radio or tv he shouts “alaska music daddy, alaska music!!!”

It’s a simple tale, two lads having an adventure in Alaska, filming their trip with a 5D and charging via solar power. It’s just so well paced, beautifully shot and edited, and the soundtrack is simply gorgeous. Take some time out of your day and float away to somewhere wonderful……….

John MacPherson was born in the Scottish Highlands. He trained as a welder in the Glasgow shipyards, before completing an apprenticeship as a carpenter, and then qualified as a Social Worker in Disability Services. Along the way he has cooked on canal barges, trained as an Alpine Ski Leader & worked as Disabled Ski Instructor, canoe instructor and stained glass design tutor. He has travelled extensively, undertaking solo trips by bicycle, or motorcycle. He has had narrow escapes from an ambush by terrorists, been hit by lightning, caught in an erupting volcano, kidnapped by a dog's hairdresser, rammed by a basking shark and was once bitten by a wild otter. He has combined all this with professional photography, which he has practised for over 35 years.
