This is for those who think Nebraska is flat and featureless. It’s also to give me a break from writing anything new! Enjoy! If you ever plan to come through, take a little time to take in the sights (and sites) that make this a unexpectedly interesting place to live or visit.
Here are a couple of links for more information:
Reblogged this on You Voted for them, Nebraska and commented:
Views of Nebraska that will impress even the natives. Will update with a proper credit.
I love this video! I lived on the East Coast for nine years and there’s a long list of friends who need to see this. If they know anything at all about Nebraska, it’s what they’ve seen while driving Interstate 80. This will impress them!
It’s easy to dismiss the states in the middle of the US. Even going back to Fremont’s expedition (“The Great American Desert” label on his map), there were unappreciative visitors traveling through! LOL!
this place looks amazing! i had really no context of nebraska.
I am partial to it, since I’m a native! On the other hand, I can’t remember one place I visited in this country or other countries where I wasn’t amazed, thrilled, delighted with what I encountered.
Nebraska tends to be one of those “there’s nothing there, there” states in many minds, but it has a subtle beauty to it. People who enjoy outdoor activities in particular enjoy visits here.
One of these days, I’d like to take one of those rafting trips on the Niobrara River. That’s the one where (in the video) you see people floating in large circular stock tanks down the river. Canoe and raft trips are available, too.
Soundtrack sounds suspiciously like something from Two Steps From Hell. It has their same Epic quality.
I’m not familiar with that. I don’t recall a specific music credit on the video, which is from a longer video.
I didn’t see any credits either …
You live in Nebraska? Looks very open and scenic! They chose some very good shots to put in that video 🙂 The perspective from above is interesting.
Yes, I am a native Nebraskan from the far western end of the state. The series of videos produced by this group are all very interesting. It’s not the usual way we visit places, though there are remote control devices with mini-video cameras now that allow people on limited budgets to make this sort of video. The result isn’t quite as professional as the Nebraska videos, but I’m intrigued…!
Yes agree, the top down perspective makes all the difference, especially since I’ve never been on a helicopter ride before!
Helicopters are fun! When I was a motion picture photographer in the US Army, I had the opportunity to shoot this sort of film from the side door of a helicopter. I had a strap to hold me in. They gave me the option of standing on the landing rails to film or leaning out the door. I (wisely!) chose to lean out the door, after re-checking the strap holding me in a few times. If you ever get a chance to ride in one, I highly recommend it!
The same people are doing similar videos around the USA. I look forward to them!
great video and enjoyed it very much.
