Despite not being in the best months of my life I still have the strength to work on my stuff, taking pictures, shooting videos and trying to find myself in some way. So probably this is another step in the pursuit of happiness. I'd like to show you my last video, filmed on the Shetland Islands, one of the most powerful locations on the planet Earth. My soul is still there. Let me know if you have a dream or not:

Very beautiful, Alex. Life is full of setbacks but there is the incredible beauty around us that makes it worth living. Never give up.

Beautiful Alex. Except ... that was summer??? And it was as cold as your clothes would suggest?
Nope, won't be my special place on earth :-) I need the sun and the warmth.

My special place is actually under water.

Keep seeing the beauty around you.

I LOVE that last scene! So well done!

Well felt and marvelously shown Alex.
No wonder why someone coming from one of the most powerful location on planet earth (Italy) would be able to find and share another powerful place!

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments! This one has a real piece of my soul put into the video.

Yes, Shetlands are pretty cold and windy, even in summer. Being so far into the Atlantic Ocean they're always windy and the weather conditions are really changeable. Winters can be be cold and snowy. In any case in summer they were not super super cold, but the winds make it worse.

As for the music, most of the time is original in my videos (I compose it with ' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' waitingsilence, but not this time. It's not an original music, I bought it.

Alex, this is truly beautiful as is all your work. I've been to the Shetland Islands and you're right, there is so much "energy" there and your video really captures it.
