David van Harn's portal to the beauty of the highland tropical
rainforests of western Panama, and fine woodworking.
Tuesday, January 22, 2013 -
While waiting - perhaps up to three months - for my new Grizzly wood lathe to arrive from
the U.S. , I've revived an old hobby - photography - and expanded it. I was having some
fun with my Canon G-10 digital camera and discovered Adobe Lightroom, a "photo
developing" software package. I decided to turn photographs from some friends' organic
botanicals and coffee farm into a slideshow with music, and the results were far better
than I expected.
You can watch a medium resolution YouTube version of the Finca Luz "Medicine Trail
Walk" with it's spectacular views and rainforest calmness at this link.
I will soon be offering hi-definition video versions (up to 1080P)for download at iTunes
and other internet sites, both for portable devices(Apple and Android) and big-screen TV's
and home theater systems. These hi-def videos really show off some the beauty of this
region. In addition to watching them directly, the downloadable hi-def versions also make
a wonderful background for get-togethers with family and friends, and even some
business gatherings where you want to create an atmosphere of calmness and reflection.
So please check back soon at this website or my blog (click the button on the left) to see
when the downloadable videos are available!
(This site will be revised over the next few months to reflect the focus on the beauty of
Panama - my new home.)
