Let there be light!

WEARING A NEW-FANGLED LIGHT SUIT, this dude illuminates his own path down powder-piled slopes. Seriously awesome stuff.

Filmmaker’s note: When you cover somebody in LED lights and have them do something even moderately cool, it takes on a whole new level of rad. Especially with a dope ambient soundtrack.

Watching this made me want to dig up some quotes on light and share them here:

  • Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. ~ Chinese proverb
  • We cannot hold a torch to light another’s path without brightening our own. ~ Ben Sweetland
  • We all walk in the dark and each of us must learn to turn on his or her own light. ~ Earl Nightingale
  • In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary. ~ Aaron Rose
